Good Government Group Says "No" to CTA-opposed Special Exemptions Ballot Measure

California Common Cause, the nonpartisan good government group, has announced its opposition to the CTA-opposed measure on the November ballot that would provide exemptions from political funding regulations for corporate special interests.

Declares Common Cause: the initiative “effectively bans the current practice of payroll deductions, thus eliminating a major funding source of labor unions, while leaving ample room for indirect political spending by corporations from their corporate treasuries. This initiative would result in significant undue advantages for one set of interests over another that we believe will do more harm to California's democracy than good, and we urge voters to vote ‘No.’”
