Senator Udall’s bill, S. J. Res. 19, is one of the constitutional amendments FCNL has been supporting throughout this Congress.
It would turn around Citizen’s United, Speech Now and McCutcheon verdicts.

The staff member said that Senator Nelson was very concerned when the most recent Supreme Court case came out (McCutcheon), and that he would be inclined to support a constitutional amendment — but he hasn’t heard much from people in Florida about this issue!
Knowing that FCNL’s network is deeply disturbed about the out-sized role of money in politics, I told the staff member that we’d be in touch with our network in Florida to ask people to make their views known.
Senator Udall’s bill has 42 co-sponsors already. It will have a hearing next week, and then it will go to the Senate floor. We need about 20 more senators to co-sponsor the bill to assure that it moves rapidly through the process.

J. Res. 19?
