Ellison Fights Corporate Personhood
June 14, 2012
The St. Paul City Council unanimously passed a resolution on June 13th to support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would declare that corporations are not people.
The Minneapolis City Council is expected to take up a similar measure. This is part of an effort called “Resolutions Week” where local units of government nationwide are being asked to take a position on the issue of corporate personhood and the Supreme Court’s “Citizens United” decision.
Minnesota’s Fifth District Congressman Keith Ellison has been active in the effort to push a Constitutional amendment. He talked with KFAI's Terry Carter on The Takeaway.
