LOS ANGELES, CA — Today, California Environmental Voters (EnviroVoters) released the following statement on the California Supreme Court’s decision against the Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act initiative, removing it from the November 2024 California ballot.

Statement from Mike Young, Senior Political and Organizing Director, California Environmental Voters:

“The California Supreme Court recognizes the Taxpayer Deception Act for what it is: an illegal revision of the constitution backed by powerful interests looking to evade their fair share of taxes. It would have severely hamstrung our ability to invest in climate action by crippling essential government funding. Defeating the efforts of businesses aligned with Big Oil is essential to continuing to make critical investments in climate justice. The Court’s decision to remove it from the ballot preserves our state’s commitment to addressing the climate crisis, maintaining California’s ability to prioritize the well-being of future generations over the interests of powerful corporations and ensuring continued progress in our fight against the climate crisis.”

California has the policy solutions to stop climate change but lacks the political will to do it at the rate and scale that’s necessary. EnviroVoters exists to build the political power to solve the climate crisis, advance justice, and create a roadmap for global action.
