Introduced in House (07/19/2000)

Expresses the sense of Congress that the Supreme Court misinterpreted the First amendment to the Constitution in its decision in the 1976 case of Buckley v. Valeo because: (1) such decision failed to recognize that the unlimited spending of large amounts of money on elections has a corrosive effect on the electoral process; and (2) such decision failed to recognize other legitimate state interests which justify limiting money in campaigns.
