Illinois becomes 14th state to back overturning Citizens United

The Illinois General Assembly passed a resolution "call[ing] upon the United States Congress to propose and send to the states for ratification a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United v. FEC, Speech v. FEC, Buckley v. Valeo and other related cases that allow for unlimited election spending."

Illinois is the 14th state to support overturning the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling, which found that unlimited and undisclosed corporate spending on elections was protected by the First Amendment.  Nearly 500 local municipalities across the country have passed similar resolutions.
