On February 28, 2012, Trillium’s CEO, Matt Patsky, testified before the Massachusetts Joint Committee on the Judiciary in support of Senate Bill No. 772. The bill calls upon the United States Congress to propose an amendment to the U.S. Constitution reversing the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United v. FEC decision.
“Citizens United allows corporations to use their enormous wealth to drown out the voices of the American people, and it allows them to do so anonymously”, Mr. Patsky said in his testimony. “The lack of transparency and oversight in corporate political activity encourages behavior that puts corporations and its shareholders at risk”, he continued.
