TPA Removed from the Ballot by CA Supreme Court

California Business Properties Association - On Thursday, June 20th, the the California Supreme Court voted 7-0 in favor of the Governor and Legislative Leaders to remove the Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act (TPA) from the November ballot. The Act would have restored the two-thirds majority vote requirement for new taxes and give voters the right to vote on new and higher taxes.
The TPA co-chairs and allies, including the CBPA have vowed to continue to pursue all available avenues to combat the attack on taxpayer rights.

From the Court: 7-0 decision. CONCLUSION A peremptory writ of mandate shall issue, directing the Secretary of State to refrain from taking any steps to place Attorney General Initiative No. 21-0042A1, also known as Secretary of State Initiative No. 1935, on the November 5, 2024 election ballot or to include the measure in the voter information guide. In light of the time constraints under which the Secretary of State is required to act, the opinion and judgment shall become final five days after it is filed. (Cal. Rules of Court, rule 8.490(b)(2)(A); see Isaak v. Superior Court (2022) 73 Cal.App.5th 792, 801.) Each party shall bear its own costs. (See Strauss, supra, 46 Cal.4th at p. 475; Raven, supra, 52 Cal.3d at p. 356.)
