School Board Campaign Contributions
By Angela Hatton
Frankfort, KY – A federal judge has suspended a law limiting campaign contributions in Kentucky school board races. The ruling lifts a $100 cap, making candidates eligible for the $1,000 limit from individual contributors allowed in other races. U.S. District Judge Danny Reeves in Frankfort ruled the limit unconstitutionally restricts a candidate's right to free association. The American Civil Liberties Union filed the suit on behalf of a Louisville school board candidate.
