New hope for reversing Citizens United

Door County United to Amend leader Dan Powers hopes Wisconsinites will finally have a say on taking money out of politics. State Senator Dave Hansen and Rep. Lisa Subeck introduced new efforts Wednesday to allow Wisconsin voters to vote on a potential constitutional amendment reversing the controversial Citizens United decision. The 2010 Supreme Court verdict ruled political spending is a form of protected free speech. It is the third straight biennium a resolution has been introduced by Wisconsin state legislators only to die in committee. Powers says there is more optimism this time around.

Over 140 communities including 18 in Door County have passed resolutions voicing their support for campaign finance reform through a constitutional amendment.
