Shays's Law

Lowry, Richard
July 1998
National Review;7/20/1998, Vol. 50 Issue 13, p4
This article discusses the campaign reform bill of U.S. Congressman Christopher Shays, Republican from Connecticut. Republicans say that Shays is selfish and doesn't care anything about the rest of the party. Shays hails from an upscale district that regularly re-elects him by comfortable margins. Shays believes that Republicans are ignoring the message of the 1994 election about campaign reform. The bill by Shays would hand more control over politics to regulators. The press and the bureaucracies will be left unharmed by the bill.
