Introduced in House (02/10/1997)

Constitutional Amendment - Authorizes the Congress, with respect to all Federal, State, and all other elections, to adopt reasonable regulations of campaign funds expended, including contributions, to influence the outcome of elections, provided that such regulations do not impair the right of the public to a full and free discussion of all issues and do not prevent any candidate for elected office from amassing the resources necessary for effective advocacy.
