Vermont Measure Calls for Revoking Corporate Personhood
In Vermont, a landmark measure has been introduced to revoke the
granting of personhood rights to U.S. corporations.
The bill calls for a
constitutional amendment declaring "corporations are not persons under
the laws of the United States." The measure's introduction Friday came
on the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision on the case
of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which opened the floodgates for unlimited corporate spending on election campaigns.
