Prop 32 debate

Today on Your Call: What's the best way to limit big money’s influence on politics in California?


On today's Your Call, we’ll continue our election coverage with a debate on Proposition 32. If it passes, it would ban unions and corporations from extracting money from employee paychecks for political campaigns.  Supporters say it gets “special interests” out of politics.  Opponents say it unfairly targets unions and leaves exemptions for corporations.  What do you want to know about Prop 32?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  What would true campaign finance reform look like?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
