66 MA cities and towns calling on congress to ammend free speech

The debate should begin now on how to word such an amendment so it does not squelch free political speech or add a distortion to the political process. That’s what 66 Massachusetts cities and towns have said this year by adopting resolutions calling on members of the congressional delegation to support such an amendment.
