Why support HF 429 and SF 390, the Free and Fair Elections Resolution?
- It would demand a U.S. Constitutional Amendment to fix the disastrous influence that dark money and special interests have on our elections, and if Congress will not act, Minnesota will apply for a limited convention under Article V to propose the amendment with the rest of the states.
- The systemic corruption of money in our elections frustrates every other issue that we care about, and the vast majority of Americans across political parties and ideologies agree it is a serious problem.
- Given the current system enabled by a series of Supreme Court decisions, a U.S. Constitutional Amendment is the only solution powerful enough to fix this problem in the long-term.
- A majority of U.S. Constitutional Amendments were preceded by a movement in the states applying for such a convention for that purpose, just like this one.
- The requirement of 3/4 of the states to ratify any proposed amendments guarantees only the most popular and non-partisan proposals have any chance of becoming amendments.
