CA Legislature Wants CA Supreme Court to Put Anti-Citizens United Petition on the November Ballot

I’ve written about at CA Supreme Court decision holding that the CA legislature had the right to put on the ballot asking voters if the CA legislature should urge Congress to pass a constitutional amendment “overturning” Citizens United. (I might support the ballot measure even though I oppose such an amendment.)

In that opinion, the CA Supreme Court held that the 2014 measure should have appeared on the ballot, and the legislature could put a new measure on the 2016 ballot.

Well now the state legislature has petitioned the Court to direct the Secretary of State to put the 2014 measure on the 2016 ballot, to avoid taking a new vote on this issue (not sure if the politics make it harder to pass such a measure now, but I don’t see why they would).
