This is really the only alternative to slowing the influence peddling.
Free Speech for People has filed a brief in the Supreme Court in American Tradition Partnership v. Bullock, a case that challenges Citizens United v. FEC and raises the issue of whether the State of Montana can prohibit election spending by corporations. The people of Montana enacted the corporate spending restriction by referendum in 1912. The Montana Supreme Court upheld the law in December, notwithstanding Citizens United, and a corporate lobbying/spending entity has appealed to the Supreme Court.
The Free Speech for People brief, joined by the American Sustainable Business Council, the American Independent Business Alliance, and a Montana business corporation, is here. Free Speech for People’s press release is here, and below.
