The California State Senate passed a bill that would require presidents to release their tax returns in order to appear on the California ballot. This bill is aimed at keeping President Trump off of the California primary ballot.
The bill now heads to the California State Assembly, and there will be an upcoming hearing in the Assembly Elections and Redistricting Committee.
“This bill is unconstitutional and discriminates against Republican voters,” Robin Hvidston, Executive Director of We The People Rising and California State Coordinator for the Remembrance Project, said. “We are calling upon the more than 4 million Californians to contact their assembly members and demand a no vote on this bill.”
Along with other visits to assembly districts, a meeting at the Claremont office with Democrat Assemblyman Chris Holden’s Deputy District Director will be held on Thursday.
“Constituents and concerned citizens will be lobbying Assemblyman Holden to encourage a no vote on this legislation,” Hvidston said. “It is disconcerting that Democrats are engaging in this tactic as a means of political posturing. We hope the Assembly side of the legislature will take a stand against this bill.”
A letter, which has been submitted as formal opposition to the bill, will be presented for Assembly Holden during the meeting with his staff member.
The Citizen Lobby Group event: Thursday, May 23 | 11:00 am
LOCATION: the meeting will in the assemblyman’s satellite office in Claremont but meet in front of the Claremont Pavilion dinner theater. The office is located in the building adjacent to the pavilion.
