Move to Amend advisory measure passes easily

November 7, 2012

The Corvallis initiative supports a nationwide effort called Move to Amend, which aims to overturn a 2010 Supreme Court decision on campaign financing.
In Citizens United vs. the Federal Election Commission the court held that the First Amendment prohibits the government from restricting independent political expenditures by corporations and unions.
The decision has led to the creation of “super PACs” and a dramatic increase in campaign spending nationally.
