Bob Edgar, Gerry Hebert and Nick Nyhart with Common Cause, a national advocacy organization that has taken a stand against Super PACs, hold a press conference on the day the Supreme Court handed down the ruling on Citizens United.

A local group is organizing an effort to reverse the Citizens United decision which allows corporations to donate to federal campaigns. On this week’s Noon Edition, we will talk about the two year anniversary of the Citizens United versus Federal Elections Commission Supreme Court decision.
