Senator Jon Tester is praising a recent vote on his Constitutional amendment that attempts to reduce “out-of-control” spending in elections. Tester’s amendment overturns the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision that allows unlimited amounts of corporate spending in federal elections. Tester said his amendment will once again give Congress and states the power to limit spending in elections and make government work better.

“When it comes to elections, more money equals more problems,” Tester said. “Citizens United opened the floodgates for corporations to spend unlimited amounts of secret money to distort our elections and drown out the voices of regular folks. This amendment will put people and their ideas back in charge of our elections. It’s a needed step to move this country forward.”

Tester also recently blasted the Supreme Court for its McCutcheon decision that struck down contribution limits preventing individuals from giving political organizations more than $123,000 each election cycle. The decision makes it easier for wealthy individuals to disproportionately influence the democratic process.
