Here’s my op-ed in the Fall River Herald News about the demand across Massachusetts (sixty-two cities and towns so far) for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United. A resolution (S.772) calling on Congress to send the 28th Amendment to the states for ratification has been pending in the State House in Boston. At a Judiciary Committee hearing on the resolution several weeks ago, hundreds of people attended and voiced support. (See the photo below; my testimony is here.)
With widespread support, including from the Attorney General, the Senate President, many, many legislators, and people across the Commonwealth, S.772 ought to pass handily. But to win, S.772 needs to come up for a vote.
If you live in Massachusetts call or email your state representative and your state Senator and ask them to make sure S.772, the Citizens United amendment resolution, gets a prompt vote now. You can find contact information for your legislators here.
