Supreme Court to Hear Challenge to Federal Aggregate Contribution Limits
If the Justices side with McCutcheon and the RNC and strike the aggregate limits, it could restore the financial strength of party committees, which took a subordinate role to unrestricted Super PACs in the last election. The case marks the first time the High Court has considered the constitutionality of direct contributions since its landmark Citizens United decision in 2010. The case is slated to be heard in the Supreme Court's next term, which begins in October.
