California politicians facing recalls would be permitted to see the names of people who sign the petitions under proposed legislation that just passed the state senate committee this week.
California politicians facing recalls would be allowed to see the names of people who sign the petitions to oust them under legislation that cleared its first committee Thursday.
If passed, it would take effect next year, meaning it would not apply to the expected recall election against Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom. But leaders of that effort showed up at the Capitol in opposition to the proposal, saying it would discourage people from signing future petitions for fear of retaliation.
“This is a dangerous and reckless bill,” said Orrin Heatlie, the lead proponent of the Newsom recall. “It would stifle the process.”
…Petition signers would then have 45 days to remove their names. Currently, people have 30 days but finding and convincing people to walk back their signature is a difficult task.
