    the corporations are pretty much creatures of state law,   if the states limit their rights,  I don't think the feds can find a way that will hold up to federalize corporations.   They could do it under the commerce clause,   but it would mean ripping apart hundreds of years of legal doctrine in a very public way.  Every corporation in the country, mom and pop to the multinationals would have to be rechartered.
