CEI Weekly: CEI Joins Dodd-Frank Lawsuit

FEATURE: CEI Joins Dodd-Frank Lawsuit

CEI joined two other plaintiffs yesterday in a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Dodd-Frank, the sweeping financial reform law that gives unprecedented powers to the government. CEI General Counsel Sam Kazman said, ""Dodd-Frank is to financial reform like a tsunami is to a slightly dry lawn — all-enveloping, hugely destructive, and pretty much unaccountable to whoever unleashed it." The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia. Read more about the lawsuit here. Also, see The Wall Street Journal's article about the lawsuit here.

June 21, 2012: Free Speech for Me, and For Thee

Labor Policy Counsel Vinnie Vernuccio explains why today’s 7-2 Supreme Court decision in the Knox v. SEIU case is an important victory for free speech. The heart of the ruling is that people should not be compelled to pay for political speech with which they disagree. Just as people may not be forcibly silenced, nor can they be forced to speak.
