This is the third time this ballot measure aimed at silencing working families has come to California. A DECEPTIVE BALLOT INITIATIVE (the so-called “Stop Special Interest Money Now Act”) intent on tricking voters into giving corporations more power will appear in November.
The millionaires and wealthy corporate interests backing it say the measure is balanced reform that gets special interests out of politics. What they don’t tell you is that this deceptive act would:
- Create a huge loophole for corporations allowing UNLIMITED SPENDING on politics-while silencing working families and their unions.
- Prohibits unions from using dues through payroll deduction on ballot measures or candidates but does NOTHING to stop corporations from spending billions in profits to influence elections.
- Limits free speech by banning any direct contributions by union to local candidates.
This measure does virtually nothing to rein in corporate spending – and that hurts all of us. We need your help to beat it one more time.
