Issue: (1) Whether the onerous burdens imposed on political committees advocating for or against candidates may be imposed on non-profit organizations speaking about ballot measures; (2) whether the state may regulate as political
committees only those organizations that meet
the threshold “major purpose” test established
by the Court in Buckley v. Valeo and whether the threshold level for such requirements must
pass strict or merely exacting scrutiny; (3) whether an organization may be subjected to political committee status based on the state’s interpretation of donor intent; and (4) whether a $100 reporting threshold in the
ballot measure context is so low that it does not constitutionally further the state’s informational interest.
