A South Bay lawmaker has introduced a bill that put on the California ballot an initiative asking Congress to adopt a constitutional amendment to overturn a U.S. Supreme Court decision on campaign financing.
State Assemblyman Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) said the bill would give Californians the opportunity to help toss out the court's 2010 Citizen United ruling that prohibited the government from restricting political expenditures by corporations and unions.
In November, similar ballot measures were approved by voters in Montana and Colorado as well as San Francisco and Richmond. Last month, Los Angeles also approved a voter instruction measure that will appear on the city’s ballot in May.
Wieckowski's measure, if approved by the state Legislature, would go on the 2014 California ballot.
