Shays-Meehan "campaign finance reform"
restrictions on free speech about politicians
House Roll Call No. 405
105th Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 252-179 (see complete tally)
On this roll call, the House gave final approval to the Shays-Meehan "campaign finance reform" bill, under the bill number H.R. 2183, 252-179, House roll call no. 405, August 6, 1998. (The Senate never took up this bill. However, on three occasions during 1997-98, Senate supporters of the similar McCain-Feingold bill failed to overcome a filibuster led by pro-life Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky). Therefore, Congress did not approve any bill to restrict free speech about politicians in the 105th Congress.)
