Proposition 50

The Peace and Freedom Party has not taken a position on Proposition 50.

This proposition would amend the state constitiution to allow either chamber of the legislature to suspend a member without pay by a two-thirds vote. Currently they can expel members by the same super-majority, but do not have the authority to suspend members. The backers of this measure believe that there are circumstances where suspension without pay is warranted even if explusion is not.
