Corporations aren’t people, an overwhelming 75 percent of Missoula voters said Tuesday, and they don’t want corporations treated like people either.
“I’m over the moon about it,” said Councilwoman Cynthia Wolken, who brought the referendum to the Missoula City Council to place on the ballot.
The measure – similar to others across the country – calls on the U.S. Congress and state leaders to amend the U.S. Constitution to say that “corporations are not human beings.” It earned 10,729 votes in favor and 3,605 against.
