  1. From today’s SD Reader online:

    “Assembly Bill 1148, a proposed law that would’ve required greater disclosure regarding the financing sources of political advertising, fell two votes short of the two-thirds supermajority needed to pass the California Assembly on Tuedsay. We reported on the proposal in greater detail the day of the vote.

    The bill was supported by every Democrat except Cathleen Galgiani of Livingston. Every Republican, with the exception of San Diego assemblyman and mayoral candidate Nathan Fletcher either voted to oppose it or abstained.

    While Democrats said the law would have helped to ease voter cynicism by making it more clear who was funding advertisements that pushed political positions, Republicans said they believe the law would have restricted freedom of speech. Instead, they proposed lifting state limits on donations directly to individual candidates.”
