The article focuses on the impact of the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court about strict limits on campaign spending and contributions of Vermont on Rule G-37 of the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board. The rule specifies to prevent dealers from engaging in municipal securities business with an issuer for two years if it contributes to an issuer official. Christopher Taylor of the board claims that the court ruling does not affect the rule in any way.
