Sen. Tom Udall (D., N.M.) has proposed a constitutional amendment that would wipe out the Supreme Court’s 5-to-4 ruling in Citizens United.
The ruling last year unleashed a flood of campaign contributions from corporations and super PACs, which can spend as much money as they want and do so nearly anonymously.
The proposal put forth by Udall would add language to the Constitution that says Congress and the states can regulate campaign contributions and expenditures. Click here for more on the proposal in The New Mexican.
This proposal is seen as part of broader movement to rethink and reform the notion of corporate personhood in the US.
