The Campaign Contributions Ballot Initiative. I-735
October 17, 2016 - 8:10 am
Supporters of Washington Ballot Initiative 735 are looking to overturn Citizens United— the 2010 Supreme Court decision that prohibited the government from restricting campaign contributions from corporations, under the ruling that those contributions are free speech.
The ballot initiative itself pushes for the Washington state congressional delegation to propose a federal constitutional amendment that would say the spending of money is not constitutionally-protected free speech, and would limit constitutional rights to individuals.
