Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Ass’n v. Brown – Amicus Brief of California Common Cause et al. – California Court of Appeal

Court Level

On March 14, 2019, CLC submitted a friend-of-the-court brief in Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Ass’n v. Brown in the California court of appeals on behalf of California Common Cause, the League of Women Voters of California, and California Clean Money Campaign, in defense of a 2016 law that paved the way for state and local entities in California to establish public financing programs. The brief argues that the law was a valid legislative amendment to the Political Reform Act of 1974 (“PRA”) because it was enacted to further the PRA’s express good-government purposes: making California’s elections more fair, competitive, and equitable.
