LWVUS Money in Politics Review

The Money in Politics Committee will conduct an update of the League’s position on campaign finance for the purpose of addressing the lack of member understanding and agreement as to whether financing a political campaign is protected speech under the First Amendment. The campaign finance position will be updated through a study and consensus process to consider: (1) the rights of individuals and organizations, under the First Amendment, to express their political views through independent expenditures and the finance of election campaign activities; and (2) how those rights, if any, should be protected and reconciled with the interests set out in the current position.

LWVUS Constitutional Amendment Materials Available

Proponents of a balanced budget amendment and opponents of the Citizens United decision have both suggested constitutional amendments as a way to change government policy. During the 2015 Utah State Legislative Session Utah became the 26th state to call for a constitutional convention to propose a federal balanced budget amendment. Thirty-four states are required to call for a convention.

If a Constitutional Convention is called, can its business be restricted to a single item like a balanced budget amendment or will it devolve into an out-of-control free-for-all? Who will regulate the process and will we get more than we asked for? These questions are among the many being studied by the League of Women Voters of the United States. Take part in the study with the League of Women Voters of Utah and discuss these very issues. Click here for complete list of study materials
