It shouldn’t be that just people investigating Donald Trump for possible crimes get s to know what a person leading a country of 300 Million has as a financial history…
This should be a requirement for EVERY state…
The California State Assembly on Thursday passed a bill that would require all presidential candidates to release their tax returns prior to being placed on the state’s ballot.
The bill, called the Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act, passed the state Assembly on a 42-18 vote and will now head to the state Senate for a concurrence vote before being sent to the governor for his signature.
“President Trump’s blatant disregard for the tradition of releasing tax returns is dangerous to our democracy,” state Sen. Mike McGuire (D), one of the authors of the bill, said in a statement. “For decades, every President has put their personal beliefs aside and put our country first and released their returns. “
“SB 149 helps to reestablish desperately needed transparency in the White House, and we are looking forward to seeing the Governor’s signature on the bill.”
The bill would require all presidential candidates to release the last five years of their tax returns in order to appear on the California ballot.
The tax returns would be made available to the public on the California Secretary of State’s website…..
