The Sacramento Bee reports that the California Legislature passed Senate Bill 448 and sent it to Governor Jerry Brown’s desk yesterday. Brown now has 12 days to sign or veto the bill.

SB 448 requires only persons circulating initiative, referendum or recall petitions to wear a large badge or sign on their chest proclaiming that they are a ‚ÄúPAID SIGNATURE GATHERER,” if they are compensated in any way for their efforts.

We have long seen the value of protecting the right to petition, but now special interests and lawmakers have come around, too!
