Update #2: April 9, 2018
A direct response from US Congresswoman Julia Brownley (CA-26):
Thank you to everyone who participated in the challenge and who shared ideas for how to improve our democracy. The policy idea with the most votes in this challenge focused on the campaign finance system and voter influence. I agree that our campaign finance system is broken and must be fixed. I have long-supported a Constitutional amendment to overturn the flawed Citizens United Supreme Court decision, and have co-sponsored H.J.Res. 31 legislation to do just that.
Based on the feedback we received from constituents, I am also working on other legislative proposals to restore the levers of democracy to the people.
I appreciate everyone’s participation in this challenge. To share your thoughts on this and other issues, contact me by visiting JuliaBrownley.House.gov/Contact or calling (805) 379-1779.
