Vermont Says Corps Are Not People!
April 19, 2012
The Vermont House of Representatives voted 92-40 in favor of a joint resolution (JRS 11) urging the US Congress to begin the process of amending the Constitution to make clear that corporations are not people and money is not speech. VPIRG applauds the grassroots activists who laid the foundation for this movement by getting over 60 Vermont towns to pass Town Meeting Day resolutions. And, we thank our state leaders for continuing the momentum.
Vermont now sends a clear message to Congress and the rest of the country: corporations are not people and money isn’t speech.
