I Support This Constitutional Amendment

The Tea Party Patriots of California are trying to put a constitutional amendment on this November's ballot - which I endorse. The name of the site where you may find all the information you need is Unplug the Political Machine. It may be stated as below (if AG Brown doesn't change it).

1403. (09-0054).

Makes Illegal the Use of Public Employee Wage Deductions for Political Activities. Initiative Constitutional Amendment.

Summary Date: 12/04/09 | Circulation Deadline: 05/03/10 | Signatures Required: 694,354

Proponents: Mark W. Bucher, Dawn M. Wildman, Allan R. Mansoor, Lawrence D. Sand, and Mark J. Meckler (714) 573-2201

Amends the California Constitution to make it illegal to deduct from wages or earnings of a public employee any amount that will be used for political activities as defined. Prohibits any membership organization that receives public employee wage deductions from using those funds for any political activities, but does not apply to deductions for charitable organizations, health, life or disability insurance, or other purposes directly benefitting the public employee. Authorizes the Legislature and Fair Political Practices Commission to adopt related laws and regulations. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Probably minor state and local government implementation costs, potentially offset in part by revenues from fines and/or fees. (09-0054.) (Full Text)

Please be polite to those with differing views. We all have free speech, however I also reserve the right to remove vulgarity from this page. Have a great day.
