California Assemblymember Withdraws His Bill to End Ban on Communist Party State Employees, Even Though it had been Passing

Ballot Access News

On May 17, California Assemblymember Rob Bonta withdrew his AB 22, even though it had passed the Assembly a few days earlier. It repeals an old law that says Communist Party members are not eligible to be state employees. See this story. Bonta said he is withdrawing the bill because it is causing mental anguish among some members of the Vietnamese community.

The law is not enforced. The U.S. Supreme Court invalidated all laws similar to this one decades ago.
