Steve Bullock Explains His Case in Recent Campaign Finance Debate[Audio]

The law, called The Corrupt Practices Act, placed limitations on corporate spending in campaigns and has come into direct conflict the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United decision. Last December, a 5-2 vote by the Montana Supreme court upheld The Corrupt Practices Act, but a group known as American Tradition Partnership has successfully challenged that ruling at a U.S. District court. KGVO news spoke with Attorney General Steve Bullock about the brief he submitted and why he thinks the Supreme Court should consider his petition.
