May - Governor Brown Signed Historic Bill Against Dark Money

SB 27, authored by Senator Lou Correa (D-Santa Ana) and sponsored by the Fair Political Practices Commission, addresses the problem by requiring any non-profit that spends $50,000 or more in California races to become a formal campaign committee, and report the contributors that fund their campaign expenditures. Those contributions then would be available for the public to see on the Secretary of State website.

July - Call for a Constitutional Convention passed the Assembly.  
AJR 1 (Gatto) would make California the second state to officially call for a constitutional convention under Article V of the constitution "for the sole purpose of proposing an amendment to the United States Constitution that would limit corporate personhood for purposes of campaign finance and political speech and would further declare that money does not constitute speech and may be legislatively limited."

what's next?? 

Go to  California Clean Money www.yesfaairelections.org  to petition legislators for these two  campaign finance reform bills:

SB 1272, the Overturn Citizens United Act!

     Recently passed Assembly Appropriations - now it goes to the full Assembly floor!

SB 1272 will put a proposition on this November's ballot that will let California voters demand that Congress create a constitutional amendment that will overturn Citizens United and say once and for all that corporations aren't people, and money isn't speech.  Tell the California Assembly to pass it now!  

SB 52, the new California DISCLOSE Act 

      Recently passed Elections Committee - expected to go to Assembly Floor this summer

The Disclose Act will require that political ads will have to clearly and prominently list their three largest funders. Passed the Assembly Elections Committee on a 5-1 vote in June   Next step the Assembly Appropriations Committee in July and on to the Assembly floor.  Since it already passed the Senate, it will go back to the Senate with amendments for a second vote.
