California State Court of Appeals Won’t Remove Advisory Measure on Campaign Finance from California November 2014 Ballot

On July 31, the State Court of Appeals in Sacramento voted 2-1 not to hear Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association v Bowen. The issue was whether Proposition 49 should be removed from the November ballot. Proposition 49 asks voters if they want Congress and the State legislature to help pass a constitutional amendment, overturning the U.S. Supreme Court opinion Citizens United v FEC. The dissenting judge said the California Constitution does not permit advisory statewide ballot measures.
