Rock River Affiliate's accomplishments were highlighted in the New Year's Eve edition of the Daily Jefferson County Union newspaper.

OCTOBER/DECEMBER - A referendum on the concept of "corporate personhood" and generally curbing election spending by special interests groups will appear on the April 2, 2013 election ballots in the cities of Fort Atkinson and Whitewater.

Councils in both communities either formally granted or or took no actionin December to advance the measure brought forward by the Rock River Affiliate of Move To Amend to the April 2, 2013 ballot. In summary, the two-page resolution seeks to rescind the 2010 Citizen's United vs. Federal Election Commission 5-4 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that granted constitutional status to corporations, and by doing so, rolled back previous legal spending limits on political campaigns.
