California Legislature Passes Resolution Calling for Constitutional Amendment to Overturn Citizens United

California has just become the 6th state to call for a U.S. Constitutional amendment:

"This measure would memorialize the Legislature’s disagreement with the decision of the United States Supreme Court in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, and would call upon the United States Congress to propose and send to the states for ratification a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission and to restore constitutional rights and fair elections to the people."

Free Speech For People was proud to have worked with the organizations which led the effort to encourage legislators to pass this critical legislation, including Public Citizen, Common Cause, California PIRG, CREDO Mobile, California Church IMPACT, California Labor Federation, California League of Conservation Voters and many others.
