Head of NJ ELEC discusses Citizens United

njsealIn this analysis, the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission’s Executive Director Jeff Brindle discusses the potential impact of Citizens United on New Jersey law.

New Jersey statutory law seems to be in no imminent danger from a Supreme Court decision that may loosen the rules applicable to corporations and unions.

New Jersey has strong disclosure laws and imposes reasonable restrictions on campaign financial activity, including that of corporations and unions.

Even, on the outside chance, New Jersey laws are challenged, they should withstand constitutional scrutiny. Nevertheless, the legal staff of the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission will review the pending decision to determine if any vulnerability exists.
