Do you have a minute to call your state legislators?
Between now and Friday, February 8th we are asking all our supporters to pick up the phone and reach out to their State Senator and State Representative and ask them to support LRB-1201/2 and LRB-1397/1.
The bills are being introduced by Representative Lisa Subeck and Senator Dave Hansen to get a statewide referendum on the November 2020 ballot to overturn Citizens Untied. If the statewide referendum passes, Wisconsin would join 19 other states that have already gone on record calling for a constitutional amendment to limit election spending.
Why is this important?
In 2010, the United States Supreme Court sided with Citizens United overturning 100 years of precedent by legalizing unlimited corporate involvement in elections. This ruling now allows corporations to be treated like "people" in campaigns, giving more power to large, faceless entities, and undermining Wisconsin’s proud tradition of open and honest government.
In the 2018 mid-term elections, outside groups spent over $61 million in the state of Wisconsin. That's more than was spent in the 2010 and 2014 mid-terms combined. That's why this is important.
