I don't think that's quite right, Moose.
I believe the so-called "personhood of corporations" was established by several
high court decisions. Of course, those can be over-ruled, but I think that, as
Constitutional interpretations, it would take a lot more than legislative
action to do away with them.
After large expenditures of federal, state, and county funds; after much
confusion generated by detours and road blocks; after greatly annoying the
surrounding population with noise, dust, and fumes, the previously existing
traffic jam is relocated by one half-mile. -- Alan Deitz
