The Nevada Legislature has passed a proposal to Congress to overturn Citizens United. The Assembly voted 26-14 Thursday on a resolution that asks Congress to propose an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would rein in political campaign spending.
Nevada is now the 19th state to make such a request that would overturn the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United case. The high court ruled that the government cannot restrict corporate or union campaign spending because it is protected by the First Amendment.
For a constitutional amendment to happen, at least 38 states would need to ratify it after Congress proposes it. Nevada passed the proposal voting down party lines.
