SB 1272 - The Overturn Ctizens United Act

SB 1272 The Overturn Citizens United Act took a huge step towards the November ballot yesterday passing out of the California Assembly on another party line vote.  The March for Democracy Marchers were in the Assembly gallery for the vote!

Our MOVI sponsored SB 1272 will make a quick stop back in the CA Senate on Thursday for a concurrence vote (if you've been following the bill's progress, you know that an amendment was added to allow the bill to not be bound by the Secretary of State's June 26th deadline,) and then... 

SB 1272 will land on Governor Brown's desk for his signature. 

He will have 12 days to sign it into law and place it on the November ballot.

The Governor needs to hear from each one of us and then some! (Please forward this email to Californians not on our MOVI distribution list.)  As the legislature, and presumably the Governor, will recess for a month after Thursday's Senate vote, it's important that he hear from Californians now, before the bill is transferred to his office..

Now is the time to call The Governor! 

Urge him to sign SB 1272 when it gets to his desk because Californians want to voice their outrage over the (continuing) decisions of this 5 person majority of the Supreme Court at the ballot box.

The number to call is 916 445 2841

If you have not signed The Pen's magic fax apparatus (nearing 5000 faxes to the Governor) please click here to send a fax to the Governor.

(We're told that Governor Brown is known for actually reading the file of letters he receives regarding bills)

Thank you for doing all you can to bring SB 1272 across the finish line. 

Call the Governor today - 916 445 2841

On the call (or to the voicemail)  state your name and where you're from and why you're calling.

The "why" can be very simple:  "I'm calling to urge Governor Brown to sign SB 1272 and put The Overturn Citizens United Act on the ballot in November."  

It's exciting to contemplate what California will be able to do if we are indeed on the November Ballot!
