Reversing Citizens United

Speaker: State Senator Bryan J. Townsend (D-Newark) 

Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission
McCutcheon vs. Federal Election Commission

State Senator Bryan J. Townsend discussed Senate Concurrent Resolution 6, which would add Delaware to the list of states calling for a constitutional convention to develop an amendment reversing the Citizens United decision, as allowed under Article V of the United States Constitution.

Both of these Supreme Court decisions have affected the way elections are held in the United States by allowing unlimited amounts of money to be spent on candidates by undisclosed donors.
