State Ballot Measures 

Proposition 50 – Suspension of Legislators (SCA 17 Steinberg)

No Consensus
(Westchester-Playa Democratic Club Executive Board Recommendation)

Constitutional Amendment - The state Constitution has rules for how to remove (expel)  state lawmakers for wrongdoing but no rules to suspend them for a limited period of time. The measure would add rules to the state Constitution about how to suspend state lawmakers, not just how to expel them including without salary and benefits. Prohibits suspended Members from using powers of office or legislative resources. Suspension would require a 2/3 vote of fellow lawmakers.

 Every vote counts!  When Democrats turn out and vote, the greater our chances to get the results we are fighting for.
