September 3, 2015

The Hawaii County Council wants Congress to sponsor a constitutional amendment curbing the ability of corporations to pump unlimited money into elections.

The council voted 6-3 to approve a nonbinding resolution by North Kona Councilwoman Karen Eoff asking the state’s congressional delegation to push the amendment in Washington. Eoff also wants the Hawaii State Association of Counties to include the measure in its priority package for the state Legislature.
