Vote NO on 32 - Stop Special Exemptions!

Prop 32, the so-called “Stop Special Interest Money Now Act” is not what it seems. Supporters claim it will take big money out of politics and fix all of Sacramento's problems, but in reality, this measure targets unions - one of the strongest advocates for the middle class in this state - and was intentionally written to give billionaire businessmen and corporate special interests even more political power. It's more appropriately called the “Special Exemptions Act”.

This measure was placed on the ballot by the Lincoln Club of Orange County, the ultra-conservative group that was the driving force behind the Citizens United Supreme Court decision that has led to the explosion of Super PACs.

3 Things You Should Know:

  1. Prop 32 creates special exemptions for wealthy donors and corporate special interests, allowing them to keep spending unlimited amounts through business front groups.
  2. Prop 32 does nothing to restrict secretive Super PACs and their undisclosed donors from spending millions to influence elections in California.
  3. Prop 32 singles out everyday heroes like teachers, nurses and firefighters, by limiting their ability to speak out about critical issues in our communities that matter to us all.

Corporations already outspend unions 15 to 1 on political expenditures 

Corporations have spent hundreds of millions of dollars over the last decade on ballot measures and independent expenditure campaigns in our state. Prop 32, the Special Exemptions Act, does nothing to change that. Secretive Super PACs will become the law of the land in California, with no accountability, checks or balances.

CTA is part of the Alliance for a Better California, which represents more than two million teachers, firefighters, police officers, nurses, school employees, and workers in the manufacturing, retail, construction, health care and other industries. Alliance members are union members and everyday Californians. We're working together to defeat the Special Exemptions Act!
