— NPR's Elizabeth Arnold reports on debate in the Senate of the McCain-Feingold Bill, which would prohibit the flow of unregulated money into political campaigns. The legislation would ban soft money — the unlimited contributions to political parties from corporations, unions and individuals. It would also draw a clear line between issue ads that promote an issue and those that promote a candidate. Senators are sharply divided over the need for campaign finance reform and the Constitutionality of the proposed changes.
