Michigan won’t limit how much money corporations and unions can spend to influence elections in the state – under legislation that’s cleared the state senate.
In 2010 the US Supreme Court said corporations and unions could spend as much money as they wanted on political campaigns.
Seven years later, Michigan lawmakers are putting that standard into state law.
Arlan Meekhof is the Senate Majority Leader. He voted in favor of the bills, “Because everybody should have free speech and the Supreme Court has said that free speech equals money in what you give.”
