Initiative on Corporations Qualifies for Ballot
HELENA, Mont. (AP) — A Montana voter initiative that says corporations are not entitled to constitutional rights because they are not human beings has qualified for the November ballot.
The Secretary of State’s office said Wednesday that backers have gathered enough signatures for it to be put before voters in the general election.
The initiative seeks to undermine the Citizens 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision that granted constitutional political speech protections to corporations.
It directs the state’s congressional delegation to help seek an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that reflects that view.
