The Court is Revisiting its Decision;
Demand that they Restore Prop 49 to the Ballot
The onslaught of money unleashed by the Supreme Court with Citizens United is destroying our democracy. That's why 45,000 Clean Money supporters joined Money Out Voters In and other Californians demanding California’s legislature put a measure on the ballot letting voters tell Congress to overturn Citizens United.
The legislature listened and put Prop 49 on the ballot. Unfortunately, California’s Supreme Court silenced voters by removing it from the ballot.
Now the Court is taking up the case again, so we must demand they restore Prop 49 to next year’s ballot. Please sign our petition now and share it with your friends!
The Court denied this right to the people of California when it removed Proposition 49 from the 2014 ballot in contravention of the California Constitution, the Court’s own established precedent, the broad authority of the legislature to engage in any activities that are “incidental or ancillary to its lawmaking functions,” and the fundamental principle of our democracy that the power rests with the people.
The Court must correct its mistake and order the Secretary of State to place Proposition 49 on the ballot in 2016. To do otherwise is to do no justice.
