US Senators From Montana and New Mexico Lead With Key Constitutional Amendments

Senator Jon Tester from Montana and Senator Tom Udall from New Mexico have joined to introduce the two key Constitutional Amendment resolutions to overturn Citizens United.  Emphasizing that “corporations are not people,” Senator Tester introduced a Constitutional amendment that would reverse the  fabrication of corporate Constitutional rights

Here’s Senator Tester:

Joining Senator Tester, New Mexico Senator Tom Udall introduced the Constitutional amendment language that would permit Congress and the States to limit election spending and contributions, overturning the 5-4 Citizens United decision that deprived Americans of the right to do that.

Both Constitutional amendment provisions have been introduced in the House by Representative Jim McGovern of Massachusetts, and have dozens of co-sponsors.

Also, Representative Nolan has combined the two key provisions into one resolution. Move to Amend has details here.
