This is an update about where things stand with Citizens United at the local, state, and national level. Our local Duluth MTA now has over 350 FB members.

Move to Amend is now working in coordination wth dozens of  other like-minded organizations. Thanks for taking the time to consider this.

Local response: Minnesotans deserve a vote on corporate money in state politics

February 17, 2016

The News Tribune’s Feb. 16 editorial resisted amending our Minnesota Constitution through a ballot process, as outlined in our Minnesota Constitution (Our View: “Don’t let politics alter Constitution”).

The editorial agreed that a problem exists with openness and transparency in Minnesota government but did not agree that the people should be allowed to vote to fix the problem. While the editorial may be correct that the House majority may be counted on to vote as a caucus on this effort to make Minnesota politics more open and transparent, this has gone on for far too long.

Citizens chained and united - Let's pass HF 276 the "We the People" Act

April 18, 2014

The "We the People" Act HF 276/ SF 17 has passed Minnesota's Civil Law Committee and needs everyone's help as it faces an imminent make or break close vote in the full State House. It succinctly requests a U.S. Constitutional Amendment to overthrow the Supreme Court's rulings in favor of both Citizens United and Shaun McCutcheon. Thanks to a citizen’s organization called Move to Amend, 500 cities/ towns plus 16 States have voted in support, and with HR 276 Minnesota could be the next.
