Fox News: FEC moves to strip ‘unconstitutional’ election spending rules after 4-year delay

After dragging its feet for four years, the federal agency that regulates campaign spending is finally moving to conform with a landmark Supreme Court decision that dramatically loosened election spending rules.

The leaders of the Federal Election Commission announced the agreement on Thursday. It marks the apparent end of a protracted deadlock on the panel over how to comply with the controversial 2010 Citizens United ruling, which lifted restrictions on corporate and union spending in elections.

The agreement also gets the FEC on the same page with the more recent McCutcheon decision, which overturned aggregate contribution limits for donors.
