Vermont Measure Calls for Revoking Corporate Personhood

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.
