In a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court today Texans for Public Justice joined with 19 reform organizations to urge the Court to uphold the historic ban on corporate campaign contributions. The future of the 100-year old federal and Texas state prohibition on corporate political contributions may be in jeopardy as the Court hears arguments in Citizens United v Federal Election Commission in a special September 9 session.

"Tearing down the wall against corporate campaign spending will hasten the selling of our government to special interests," said TPJ director Craig McDonald.

TPJ's brief and background information are available at Justice at Stake.
