Great News!  Another state officially calls to overturn Citizens United!

From The California Clean Money Campaign
Last week, Illinois became the third state to take decisive action against unlimited spending in political campaigns by officially calling for an Article V constitutional convention to overturn Citizens United.

Illinois follows California, which itself made an official call for an Article V convention this June when it passed AJR 1, authored by Assemblymember Mike Gatto (D-Los Angeles).

Clean Money supporters like you played a crucial role — thousands of you emailed and called your legislators urging them to pass it!
“Passage of AJR 1 may mark a turning point in our nation’s history. …if other states follow California and Vermont’s lead, we have the hope of bringing sanity back to our democracy whether Congress acts or not.”

Congratulations to Illinois legislators for their strong leadership, and major kudos to our friends at Wolf PAC and all the activists in Illinois.  There’s still a long way to go, but it’s a great start
