JOIN MOVI’s Campaign to Make California Prop 59 Compliant
With the passage of Prop 59 California voters instructed our elected officials “to use all of their constitutional authority” to deliver to the people of California an amendment to the US Constitution which would remove Big Money from our elections.
Every member of California’s Congressional Delegation received this instruction. There are 55 members of the California Congressional Delegation, 53 in the House of Representatives and 2 in the US Senate.
Every one of them has received an instruction from the voters of California with Prop 59. Compliance with that instruction requires each of them to sign on as a co-author of the Constitutional Amendment to “Overturn Citizens United.”
If our CA Members of Congress refuse to comply with the voters’ instruction we will work to replace them in 2018 with those who will.
Passage of a constitutional amendment will require 292 votes in the US Congress. California’s 53 votes is nearly 20% of that total.
Together we can make this happen.
Is your California Member of Congress Prop 59 compliant?
A constitutional amendment to restore the power in our democracy to the people of America is the only permanent and comprehensive solution to corporate dominance over US policies both foreign and domestic and the ever increasing, SCOTUS enabled amounts of money that will continue to be thrown at increasingly corruptible candidates.
We need an amendment! We often hear that achieving a Constitutional Amendment is hard. We don’t disagree. It’s supposed to be hard.
What we don't hear about is the progress that’s being made every day by Americans demanding an amendment to overturn Citizens United and re-establish America's lost democracy.
20 states have passed legislation instructing the US Congress to pass an amendment to overturn Citizens United. New Hampshire became the 20th in June, 2019. That's half the states it would take to ratify an amendment to the US Constitution, all without a media drumbeat to fan its flames. When the Wyoming legislature introduced a 2017 bill to overturn Citizens United that left only 7 states in the entire country with no formal measures undertaken to overturn Citizens United.
