ACLU Challenges Florida Law Limiting Contributions to Ballot Petition Drives to $3,000 Per Person

The NY Times article in the post below this one on Republican measures to curtail direct democracy noted among other changes was a $3,000 individual limit on contributions to ballot petition drives in Florida. This seems clearly unconstitutional under existing Supreme Court precedent (Bellotti and CARC v. City of Berkeley).

So when I did a bit of searching I see via Ballotpedia that the ACLU already filed suit against this measure, citing those cases.
