Sacramento Bee Carries Op-Ed Opposing Bill to Shrink Time for Collecting Signatures in Lieu of California Filing Fee

The Sacramento Bee has this op-ed by Mike Feinstein of the California Green Party. It criticizes AB 469, which shrinks the amount of time available for candidates to get on a California primary ballot, if the candidate wishes to circulate the petition in lieu of the filing fee. The bill does also shrink the number of signatures, but the reduction in the number of signatures is smaller proportionately than the amount of lost time.

AB 469 has already passed the Assembly and has a hearing in the Senate Elections Committee on Tuesday, June 20.
