Since the post-Watergate reforms to the Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA), through the recent enactment of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA), there have been a myriad of rules, judicial decisions, and other legal developments concerning the financing of various activities and organizations connected with campaigns for federal elective office (the presidential and congressional races). Similarly, with respect to state and local elections, there have been developments that parallel the reforms applicable to federal elections, as well as some regulatory innovations that have no precise equivalent in federal law. The Moritz College of Law is fortunate to have particular strength in this large and fast-moving field of campaign finance law, in both federal and state law dimensions. Professors Foley and Tobin have concentrated their campaign finance scholarship on federal issues, while Professor Huefner has focused on state campaign finance laws. The e-Book reflects these different areas of expertise, with subsection 3.1.1 devoted to federal regulations and subsection 3.1.2 to state and local rules.
