U.S. Supreme Court is starting its new term Monday with several
significant cases on the docket involving campaign contributions and the
president's recess appointments, to name a few.
The justices are expected to hear oral arguments Tuesday on a campaign finance case, McCutcheon vs. FEC,
which looks to challenge the cap on donations a person is allowed to
give candidates, political action committees and political parties
during one federal election cycle.
The Supreme Court is also set to hear oral arguments November 6 regarding the Town of Greece v. Galloway case involving whether or not it is constitutional for governments to begin meetings with a prayer.
Another suit the court may consider deals with three recess appointments President Barack Obama made to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) back in 2012 when the Senate was not officially in recess.
issue of birth control coverage under the Affordable Care Act may also
be reviewed by the court at the request of the Justice Department as
well as the religious owners of a cabinet-making business called Conestoga.
Oral arguments scheduled for this month are not expected to be rescheduled due to the partial government shutdown.
