Assemblymember Ward’s Statement on the California Supreme Court Ruling on the Taxpayer Protection Act

For immediate release:

(SACRAMENTO, CA) – Assemblymember Chris Ward released the following statement in response to California Supreme Court’s Decision to remove the Taxpayer Protection Act from the November ballot:

“I am pleased the California Supreme Court ruled the Taxpayer Protection Act will not be on the November ballot by going too far in revising the state constitution, but the fight is not over to protect direct democracy rights through majority vote,” said Assemblymember Chris Ward (D-San Diego). “ACA 13 will remain on the ballot because special interests continue to threaten the voters’ right to decide elections by majority vote. The Protect and Retain the Majority Vote Act will proactively protect California’s Constitution from repeated anti-democratic attacks and ensure special interests play by the same rules by having to meet any higher threshold they are proposing.”
