Snowe on corporate personhood

Senator Olympia Snowe has said the recent US Supreme Court ruling allowing unlimited corporate spending on elections is "regrettable" and "disappointing."

What remains to be seen is whether she will back the Fair Elections Now Act, which would provide public funding for federal elections (similar to the Clean Election system in Maine), some other attempt to solve the problem of corporate personhood, or take no legislative position at all.

For the record, Collins opposes the FENA bill, and Pingree and Michaud support it.
