Citizens from Montana overwhelmingly voted to overturn “Citizen’s United.”
The initiate stated simply,
“Ballot initiative I-166 establishes a state policy that corporations are not entitled to constitutional rights because they are not human beings, and charges Montana elected and appointed officials, state and federal, to implement that policy. With this policy, the people of Montana establish that there should be a level playing field in campaign spending, in part by prohibiting corporate campaign contributions and expenditures and by limiting political spending in elections…”
The initiative passed 75% to 25% in Montana.
