The Supreme Court announced yesterday that it will consider whether to
uphold a ban on corporate spending in federal elections, a move that
campaign finance experts said could have a dramatic effect on the 2010 and
2012 federal elections.

In a surprise move, the court said it would delay a decision on whether a
conservative group's film criticizing then-Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton ran
afoul of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance act.

Instead, the court scheduled a rare September hearing on whether the law
itself raised constitutional questions and it said it would reexamine a
1990 decision that said restricting corporations from spending money from
their general treasuries to support or oppose political candidates did not
violate constitutional guarantees of free speech.

"This has the potential to be a blockbuster," said Michael E. Toner, a
former chairman of the Federal Election Commission. He said the issues
have implications for "the whole architecture of the federal campaign
financing system."
