Oak Park Response to "Citizens United" on Tuesday Ballot

November 6, 2012

Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court removed virtually all restrictions on corporate money in politics, groups around the country have been attempting to overturn the results of "Citizens United."

Now communities such as Oak Park are giving residents a voice on whether that should happen.

Oak Park Township has placed an advisory referendum on Tuesday's ballot asking voters for governments on all levels to consider a constitutional amendment regulating political funding of campaigns.
