SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California voters could weigh in this fall on the growing influence of money in politics under a bill that advanced Monday.
The legislation calls for an advisory ballot measure asking if voters want an amendment to the U.S. Constitutional clamping down on corporate campaign giving.
The state Assembly approved SB1272 on a party-line 49-22 vote, with Republicans in opposition. The bill is expected to pass the Senate with amendments and head to Gov. Jerry Brown.
