WHEREAS, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission presents a serious and direct threat to our republican democracy; and

WHEREAS, Article V of the United States Constitution empowers and obligates the people and states of the United States of America to use the constitutional amendment process to correct those egregiously wrong decisions of the United States Supreme Court that go to the heart of our democracy and republican self-government; and

WHEREAS, the people and states of the United States of America have strengthened the nation and preserved liberty and equality for all by using the amendment process throughout our history, including in seven of the ten decades of the 20th century and including to reverse seven erroneous Supreme Court decisions.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of East Providence calls upon the United States Congress to pass and send to the states for ratification a constitutional amendment to reverse Citizens United v.

Although Forbes St. is or is not a state road, it is a mess, unsave because of many holes and depressed asphalt, and, sense it is used heavily by the residents of Riverside, should be a priority. Gas and electric comnpanies come in and make cuts, then are allowed by the state not to adequately replace the ashpalt. Needs to change.
