Vt. senators take aim at campaign financing

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

A group of Vermont state senators are taking aim at the controversial Citizens United decision on campaign financing.

The ruling three years ago from the U.S. Supreme Court opened the door to unlimited spending on political campaigns by corporations, unions and other groups that set up super PACs.

Thursday, a group of Democratic and Progressive senators announced plans to begin the process of amending the U.S. Constitution to overturn the ruling.
