May 6, 2010
Hosted by Squire Patton Boggs
This week on the Capital Thinking Radio show, election lawyer Bill McGinley shares his insights on new legislation that responds to the controversial U.S. Supreme Court Citizens United v FEC ruling allowing unlimited corporate, union and interest group spending on advertising. Why did the Labor Department do an about-face in its interpretation of the Fair Labor Standards Act? Richard Andreano and Dough Mishkin, partners at Patton Boggs LLP, explain the impact on employers. Next, Bob Burleson, president of the Florida Transportation Builders’ Association, questions the Florida state legislature plans to use the state’s Transportation Trust Fund to balance the state’s budget.
