On August 4, the California Supreme Court asked for briefs in Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association v Bowen, S220289. The is the case on whether the legislature has the power to put advisory measures on the statewide ballot. The legislature passed a bill earlier this year, saying California November ballots should ask voters if they want Congress and the legislature to work for a constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court decision Citizens United v FEC. Last week, the State Court of Appeals had voted 2-1 to leave it on the ballot. Thanks to Rick Hasen for the news.
