Proposition 32 would ban labor unions, corporations, government contractors and state and local government employers from spending money deducted from employee paychecks for political purposes.
It would prevent labor unions and corporations from making donations to candidates for office, although they would be able to continue to pay for independent campaigns to support or oppose candidates. It would ban government contractors from donating to elected officials who have a role in awarding their contracts.
