September 30, 2011

A conference on the recently published book, "Politics, Taxes, and the Pulpit: Provocative First Amendment Conflicts," (Oxford University Press) by professor Laurence Winer of the College of Law and Nina J. Crimm of St. John’s University School of Law, will be held at the University of Kentucky College of Law on Oct. 12, in Lexington, Ky.

The book delves into the dilemma of federal tax subsidies for refraining from partisan political speech for houses of worship. The conference will highlight the main arguments on both sides of the issue and will also discuss the First Amendment’s role in the constitutionality of the laws.
