California Repeals All Residency Requirements for Petition Circulators

On September 9, California Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 213, which repeals all residency requirements for petitioners. This will settle two pending lawsuits that had been filed against California. One is Libertarian Party of Los Angeles County v Bowen, now pending in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. The other case, technically, is nineteen different lawsuits, all filed by Wisconsin resident Robert Raymond against nineteen separate counties. Those cases are pending in U.S. District Courts in Sacramento and San Francisco.
