Professor Eberle on Supreme Court’s Campaign Finance Ruling

Effect of High Court Ruling Still Unclear in R.I.

By Randal Edgar, Providence Journal, State House Bureau

The experts and pundits are saying Thursday’s Supreme Court ruling on campaign finance will change the landscape on corporate spending in federal elections, but local observers say there are lots of pieces to shake out before it becomes clear what the impact will be in Rhode Island.
