Rep. Derek Kilmer Co-sponsors H.R. 1

You can add your name as a citizen co-sponsor here.

https://act.myngp.com/Forms/9173151447809789440…

From Rep. Derek Kilmer:
Nine years ago, in a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that limits on corporate spending to influence elections violated the First Amendment. Since then, the amount of big money in politics has skyrocketed while the confidence that “we the people” have in our system has plummeted. Safe to say, the Supreme Court got it wrong on Citizens United.
