Council passed the resolution about campaign spending by corporations at the urging of several Akron residents who are part of an effort to lobby state and federal representatives to approve limits in light of the record-setting spending in federal elections this year. Council members said they favor limiting campaign spending by corporations but don’t want to impede on corporations’ other free-speech rights.

“We have to address this issue,” Williams said.
