LWVUS Constitutional Amendment Study Consensus Meeting, October 17, 2015 

The LWV of Chester County is hosting a Consensus Meeting on Saturday, October 17, 9 AM at West Chester Borough Hall,  402 E. Gay Street.

No reservations necessary!   Join other LWVCC members for coffee, doughnuts, discussion and consensus about ways to address and support constitutional change. A downloadable study guide is available online at

In 2010, in “Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission”, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations are persons, entitled to the same protections of free speeach as people. The fruit of that decision has been the growth of Super Pacs and non-disclosing  “social welfare” non-profits, all funneling money into attempt to control elections.

In 2014, delegates at the LWVUS Convention agreed to a national study of money in elections and of circumstances that would determine support for changes in the constitution. The first part of that study addresses constitutional change, and asks for consensus on three key questions:

  1. What guidelines should be used in evaluating constitutional amendment proposals?

  2. What aspects of an Article V Constitutional Convention are important in conducting such a convention?

  3. Should the League support a constitutional amendment that will advance a League position even if there are significant problems with the actual amendment as proposed or it is being put forward by a procedural process the League would otherwise oppose?
