Brady Applauds Philadelphia City Council on Citizens United Resolution
June 21, 2012 (Washington, D.C.) House Administration Committee Ranking Member, Robert Brady (D-Philadelphia) has commended the Philadelphia City Council on their resolution urging a Constitutional Amendment to undo the damage caused by the Citizens United decision.
“I have been a leader on this issue for many years, and it’s great to see support on this issue from our city leaders,” said Rep. Brady. “The Supreme Court got it wrong in Citizens United, and it’s time we clean up the mess it made. Hopefully this resolution will be a catalyst, inspire more of our state and local leaders, and push Republicans in the House to address this glaring problem and stop running out the clock on this Congress.”
As Chairman of the House Administration Committee, Rep. Brady held three hearings on the DISCLOSE Act, a bill that required disclosure of political contributions that was passed by the House of Representatives. Unfortunately, the bill fell one vote short from passing the Senate.
