CALIFORNIA: Tea Party Pol Introduces Bill To Force State To Defend Ballot Measures

Tea Party-backed California GOP state Sen. Tom Harman has introduced a bill that would require the state to go to court to defend all voter-approved ballot measures. The bill reads:
The Attorney General shall not refuse to defend a constitutional amendment or an initiative statute on the basis of it being unconstitutional, or in conflict with, or in violation of federal law or regulation, unless an appellate court has made a determination that the amendment or statute is unconstitutional or otherwise in conflict with, or in violation of, federal law or regulation.
The bill has the backing of NOM.
