UT City Council, Mayor Signed Resolution Against Citizens United

St. Louis Tribune: “Mayor Ralph Becker and the City Council signed a joint resolution Tuesday recognizing opposition to the 2010 “Citizens United” Supreme Court decision that opened funding floodgates in political campaigns.

The action, acknowledged that 89 percent of Salt Lake City voters who responded to the city’s 2013 opinion question opposed the “Citizens United” ruling, which found that corporations were people and money was speech and government could not legally restrict independent political contributions.

According to a statement from the Utah Chapter of the national grassroots organization called Move to Amend, Salt Lake City will join over 600 U.S. cities opposed to the Supreme Court ruling.”
