‘Corporations Are Not People’ in Montana, Colorado | Common Dreams

In a landslide victory Tuesday night, Montana voters approved an initiative stating “that corporations are not entitled to constitutional rights because they are not human beings” — corporations are not people.

The initiative directly challenges the now infamous Citizens United decision, which allows corporations to contribute unlimited amounts of money for campaign groups know as super PACS and ‘shadow money’ organizations.

Initiative 166 will win roughly 75 percent to 25 percent, according to the likely, but not yet final, results, Montana’s Billings Gazette reports.
