In just a few days, in addition to voting in a highly contentious presidential race, Californians will vote on 154 state and federal legislative races and 17 state propositions. California Family Council joins numerous organizations in strongly urging you to vote YES on Proposition 54.
Not to be confused with Proposition 64, which would legalize the use of recreational marijuana, and which CFC vehemently opposes, Proposition 54 is designed to keep special interests out of politics.
A diverse coalition representing numerous good government, environmental, ethnic, community, business, taxpayer, public policy, political, college campus, and faith organizations, newspapers, and individuals have banded together to demand that California law put voters first, not special interests.
Special interests have too much influence in the legislature, and this initiative would give power back to the voters.
According to their website, yesprops54.org:
Prop. 54 will restore integrity to the California legislative process. Prop. 54 would:
- Give the public and their elected representatives time to read new legislation before it is passed,
- Put legislative meetings online so that all Californians can stay informed, and
- Allow the people to make their own videos of legislative meetings and share them among the public.
