JOIN THE RESTORE 49 - LET THE PEOPLE SPEAK CAMPAIGN
READ THE BRIEFS FILED WITH THE SUPREME COURT OF CALIFORNIA
We Will Not Be Silenced!
On August 11, the California Supreme Court rashly removed Proposition 49 from the November ballot, denying voters the chance to direct California’s congressional delegation to support a constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court’s ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission.
Let the Court know you will not be silenced!
Sign the petition
to the California Supreme Court demanding they Let the People Vote.
Text of Prop 49:
“Shall the Congress of the United States propose, and the California Legislature ratify, an amendment or amendments to the United States Constitution to overturn Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010) 558 U.S. 310, and other applicable judicial precedents, to allow the full regulation or limitation of campaign contributions and spending, to ensure that all citizens, regardless of wealth, may express their views to one another, and to make clear that the rights protected by the United States Constitution are the rights of natural persons only?”
The Legislature Did its Job of Representing the People
In passing SB 1272 to place Proposition 49 on the ballot, the California Legislature was responding to requests from constituents to speak out against misguided Court rulings. Citizens generated more than 55,000 petition signatures, 40,000 emails, 176,000 faxes and hundreds of personal visits to the Capital.
