Senator McGuire’s Statement on Initial Ruling on Presidential Tax Transparency

Tuesday, October 1, 2019

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

“There’s an easy fix to this issue. The President steps up and follows through with his promise and releases his returns. Every other President for the past 40 years has done this,” Senator Mike McGuire said.

“On the case at hand, the judge got it wrong. Some of the brightest constitutional minds in the nation have been very clear that this law will withstand a constitutional test. We believe this initial ruling should be appealed, and that transparency should win the day.”
