New Hampshire Calls for Constitutional Amendment to Overturn Citizen's United


On March 20, 2013, by a vote of 189-139, the New Hampshire House of Representatives passed a resolution calling for a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's democracy destroying Citizens United ruling and make clear that corporations are not people [my friend] with constitutional rights. Ten Republican legislators even joined in voting in favor of the resolution.
Free Speech For People and Public Citizen partnered together on this with our allies in New Hampshire, including many great legislators who led the floor fight for yesterday's victory.

This vote follows the passage two weeks ago in Washington State's House of Representatives of a similar resolution, which is now moving forward in the state senate there. Such resolutions are advancing in many other states, including Maine, Nevada, and West Virginia.
