Constitutional Amendment Study
Date: Saturday, January 9, 2016
Time: 9:00 am
Pleasant Valley Library
The Money in Politics Committee will conduct an update of the League's position on campaign finance for the purpose of addressing the lack of member understanding and agreement as to whether financing a political campaign is protected speech under the First Amendment. The campaign finance position will be updated through a study and consensus process to consider: (1) the rights of individuals and organizations, under the First Amendment, to express their political views through independent expenditures and the finance of election campaign activities; and (2) how those rights, if any, should be protected and reconciled with the interests set out in the current position. Utah's website, www.lwvutah.org, contains the consensus questions and reading material so we can get the information now. We will meet on Saturday, January 9 at 9:00 a.m. at the Pleasant Valley Library to reach consensus for the Weber League.
