|A bill introduced by Montana state Rep. Steve Lavin would give corporations the right to vote in municipal elections.

Most significantly of all, the five conservative justices voted in Citizens United v. FEC to permit corporations to spend unlimited money to influence elections. Actually giving corporations the right to vote, however, is quite a step beyond what even this Supreme Court has embraced.|
