Suit against FEC regulations not dismissed

The Hill's Tipsheet reports in today's edition:

Expect the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to review a challenge by House campaign finance reformers Chris Shays (R-Conn.) and Martin Meehan (D-Mass.) to election regulations adopted last year by the Federal Election Commission (FEC). On Wednesday, U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly rejected a proposal by the FEC to dismiss Shays and Meehanís case on the basis that they lacked standing. The favorable ruling for the reformers could be a sign that the court is inclined to throw out new FEC regulations that reformers have criticized for undermining the new campaign finance law.
