California State Assembly
The California State Assembly on Thursday passed legislation mandating that all presidential and state gubernatorial candidates release their tax information in order to appear on that state’s ballot.
The bill, SB 27, passed overwhelmingly with a 57-17 vote, ABC 7 News reported. The legislation will require candidates to share income tax returns for the previous five taxable years with the California state government. That information will then be available to voters on the state’s Secretary of State website.
