On July 17, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee passed SJR 19, a proposed constitutional amendment. It says, “Section 1. To advance democratic self-government and political equality, and to protect the integrity of government and the electoral process, Congress and the States may require and set reasonable limits on the raising and spending of money by candidates and others to influence elections. Section 2. Congress and the States shall have power to implement and enforce this article by appropriate legislation, and may distinguish between natural persons and corporations or other artificial entities created by law, including by prohibiting such entities from spending money to influence elections. Section 3. Nothing in this article shall be construed to grant Congress or the States the power to abridge the freedom of the press.”
The measure has 46 co-sponsors. Here is the list.
