Senator McGuire’s Statement on Presidential Tax Transparency Court Ruling

Thursday, September 19, 2019

Sacramento, CA – Senator Mike McGuire issued the following statement in response to today’s court ruling blocking California’s Presidential Tax Transparency & Accountability Act: 

“Today’s initial ruling is perplexing, premature and not necessary. We’re way out in front of any deadline required under the law and the irreparable harm argument is simply not apparent,” Senator Mike McGuire said. “I think the judge got this one wrong and a decision as important as this should not have been rushed or the law prematurely shut down.

“We will always believe transparency is the foundation of accountability in government.”
