Scott Flick will speak at this session which takes place at 10:30 am. The landmark Supreme Court case, Citizens United v. FEC, has clearly transformed the rules for corporate spending on campaign ads. Now corporations and unions may buy air time to advocate for or against candidates in federal and state elections. This session will address the opportunities raised, as well as the risks created by legislation intended to block the impact of the ruling.
Scott Flick will also be speaking that day in a separate “Legislative Update” session scheduled for 3:00 pm.
