Provides an overview of selected campaign finance policy options in light of Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC, which struck down the longstanding prohibitions on corporations using their general treasury funds to make independent expenditures and on corporations and labor unions from using general treasury funds for "electioneering communications;" determining that these prohibitions constituted a band on First Amendment right to free speech. Considers legislative action and potential implications for political advertising.
