California Supreme Court Asks for Briefs in Case on Whether Advisory Measure on Campaign Finance Should Remain on Ballot

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.
