Misunderstanding Citizens United in CA

California already had Citizens United rules.

Recently an acquaintance complained about the Citizens United (CU) decision in 2010 by the US Supreme Court that held governments may not prevent corporations or unions from engaging in political spending. When I pointed out that the CU decision had no impact on California state politicsbecause the state operated under those rules before the CU decision, my friend disagreed. Unfortunately, his misunderstanding is common.
