Our Updated Citizens United Report – How the States Are Reacting
The practical result of the U.S. Supreme Court’s January 21, 2010, Citizens United decision allows corporations, labor unions, and others to make independent expenditures and electioneering communications regarding candidates without restrictions.
We are approaching the second anniversary of Citizens United. We said at the time of the decision the biggest impact would come when states chose to react – or not react – to the decision. We have tracked what the states are doing – whether the state has passed new laws, clarified existing laws, or has bills pending.
Be sure to take a look at the essential and up-to-date report we have made available on our website regarding how the states are reacting to Citizens United.
