Wealthy corporate executives and their lobbyists have filed a legal challenge to keep Fair Share Amendment off the ballot. They don’t want to pay a little more to make investments in our transportation and public education systems. If they win the lawsuit, they will take away your right to vote on the Fair Share Amendment in 2018.
The wealthy corporate executives who are bankrolling this legal challenge have made tens of millions of dollars running companies that benefit from investments in transportation and public education, and they don’t hesitate to take millions of dollars in tax breaks from the state. But now that we’re asking them to pay their fair share, they’re doing everything they can to keep the Fair Share Amendment off the ballot.
We’re confident that the Fair Share Amendment will withstand this legal challenge, but the corporate lobbyists want to keep us tied up in court - will you sign our petition below to help us defend the Fair Share Amendment?
