Vermont Measure Calls for Revoking Corporate Personhood | CommonDreams.org.

In Vermont, a landmark measure has been introduced to revoke the granting of personhood rights to U.S. corporations.
The bill calls for a constitutional amendment declaring “corporations are not persons under the laws of the United States.” The measure’s introduction Friday came on the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision on the case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which opened the floodgates for unlimited corporate spending on election campaigns.
