Missouri Supreme Court restores campaign finance limits

By AP/KWMU

Jefferson City, Mo. – The Missouri Supreme Court has reinstated campaign contribution limits.

The court unanimously overturned a lower-court judge who threw out a fund-raising ban for elected officials during the legislative session. The judge had kept intact the overall repeal of Missouri's individual contribution limits.

The Supreme Court says the legislative history of the bill indicates lawmakers would not have repealed contribution limits without the donation blackout period.
