Welcome to Corvallis Area Move to Amend
Our lawmakers have a compelling constitutional basis, if not also a democratic duty, to take measures designed to guard against the potentially deleterious effects of corporate spending in local and national races. ~ from Justice John Paul Stevens, in dissent opinion in the Citizens Unites v. FEC Supreme Court case, Jan 20, 2010 (click here for more quotes)
We are an organization dedicated to changing the legal definition and status of corporations as people and money as speech. We are an affiliate of the national Move to Amend Coalition, and have existed as an organization since November 2011. We meet regularly as a whole group, and also in individual committees.
We have another webpage linked to the national MTA website. See our Google Group for discussions.
