Rubio Encourages Republicans to Go After Woke Finance

Dec 6, 2022 | Press Releases

A new Senate Republican report examines the influence that woke financial corporations who push left-leaning policies have on their corporate shareholders.
 

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), who released groundbreaking legislation in 2021 to hold woke corporations accountable, issued a statement on woke finance’s negative economic effect.

  • “Woke finance is a cancer on our free-market economy. These are often nationless corporations that amass fortunes divorced from the fate of our great country while pushing socially destructive, far left policies like boycotts and cancel crusades at home. We need to empower patriotic Americans who actually love their country to fight back against the growing tyranny of the woke elites running corporate America.” — Senator Rubio

 
Background. Rubio’s Mind Your Own Business Act would require corporate directors to prove their “woke” corporate actions were in their shareholders’ best interest in order to avoid liability for breach of fiduciary duty in shareholder litigation over corporate actions relating to certain social policies. It would also incentivize corporate management to stop abusing their positions to advance left-wing social policies by increasing their personal liability to shareholders for breaches of fiduciary duty resulting from those policies.
