Conference Call

Recall ElectionsIn the wake of some extremely high-profile recall efforts, our panel of experts will discuss the intersection of campaign finance laws and recall elections.  Given the nature of recall elections, what should be the extent and form of governmental efforts to regulate fundraising and expenditures?  Do First Amendment speech rights differ in recall elections vis-à-vis conventional elections?  Is such regulation necessary to ensure equality of opportunity in political discussions in recall elections?


  • Prof. Elizabeth Garrett, University of Southern California
  • Ms. Lisa T. Hauser, Gammage & Burnham
  • Mr. William R. Maurer, Institute for Justice, Washington Chapter


Call begins at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
