This is an old revision of the document!

(updated May 2019)

Three State House bills, based on PassMassAmendment language, need your support!

1. Bill H.85 would amend the Massachusetts Constitution, based on “Corporations Are Not People, Money Is Not Speech.” The bill is OUT OF COMMITTEE! Ask **your state legislators** to get statehouse leadership to get H.85 to the floor for a vote! Stayed tuned by visiting our Facebook page.

2. Bill H.685 requires disclosure of all original sources of political contributions, or a disclaimer is added to all advertisements that foreign nationals are most likely funding this advertisement.

Bills H.85 and H.686 were filed by State Rep. Paul Mark (Peru, Mass.).

3. Bill H.3484, which would limit political contributions from non-Massachusetts-residents, was filed by State Rep. Mike Connolly (Cambridge, Mass.).

  • ===== We expect hearings for H.3484 and H.3559 with the Joint Committee on Election Laws in the near future. When we know the date(s), we’ll send out an Action Alert. =====

Please ask your state legislators to support H.63, H.3484 and H.3559. If they already are supporting them, please thank them! (Click here for sample letter.) You can use it for both Reps and Senators, just tailor it for your Rep and Senator.
Fun Fact: During the last session, the PassMassAmendment bills H.933 and S.53 came OUT OF COMMITTEE! This was a huge step. The same language has been reissued as H.63. And we're going to try to get through committee again!

If you've already asked your legislator to support, and you want to help more, here are some ideas!

Also, feel free to THANK the CO-SPONSORS!

If your legislator is a co-signer of either of the H63 amendment. Please call or write and ask her/him to support these bills by attending the hearings. See list of co-signers, below.

Thank you for taking action to get BIG $$$$$$ OUT of Our Electoral Politics,
