Chair Keith-Agaran, Vice-Chair Rhoads, Members of the Committee:
I am testifying for the League of Women Voters of Hawaii. Thank you for this opportunity to speak on behalf of our
members throughout Hawaii.
The League of Women Voters of Hawaii supports this Resolution. In particular, the interpretation of money spent on political campaigns as “free speech”, and SCOTUS extenstion of this equation to disallow regulation and limitations on campaign spending, has distorted our electoral process and threatens the basis of democracy in the United States
and each of its States. We hope that the U.S. Congress takes action to correct these policies.
Thank you for the opportunity to testify.
