"FEC sets fundraising cap on ballot measure"

The Sacramento Bee offers this report, which begins: "Two San Joaquin Valley congressmen can raise cash in $20,000 chunks to oppose a California redistricting ballot measure, the Federal Election Commission ruled Friday." See also this brief story about the FEC's Friday meeting from CQ Politics, which reports that Commissioners David M. Mason and Steven T. Walther were elected FEC chairman and vice chairman for 2008." This assumes that Commissioner Walther can remain on the FEC after Congress adjourns later this month, and this is very much an open question right now.
