Udall writes legislation to overturn Citizens United
U.S. Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico has introduced legislation that could lead to overturning that controversial Supreme Court decision that essentially says money equals speech and corporations are actually people.
The legislation calls for a constitutional amendment that would give Congress, not the courts, power over how elections are financed.
Constitutional amendments require approval by two-thirds of both the House and Senate, after which they would have to be approved by state legislatures in at least 38 states
