ELECTION BRIEF: Prop T - Regulating lobbying

Nov 4, 2016

Prop T would set restrictions on lobbyists making financial contributions to elected officials.

 

Proposition 59 is about overturning Citizens United. This measure would direct California’s elected officials to try to reverse the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that allowed corporations and other organizations to spend without restriction on political campaigns. It's the ruling that said “corporations are people.” If you see nothing wrong with that ruling, then you'll vote no on 59. But if you think the Citizens United ruling was a bad idea, then you'll want to know more about this proposition.
