California State Senator Joel Anderson explains his opposition to SB 163

California State Senator Joel Anderson (R-38th) has issued a statement to Etopia News expressing his reasons for opposing SB 163, a bill authored by California State Senator Robert M. Hertzberg (D-18th) that would allow “Vote-from-Home”® by providing all of California’s registered voters mail-in/absentee ballots during all statewide primary, special and general elections.  Here’s what he said:

“SB 163 places an unfunded mandate on counties.  Counties already have the autonomy to do what this bill proposes and that authority should be left in their hands.  This proposal comes with a substantial cost, and it should be up to each individual county to decide how to utilize their limited resources to best carry out an election.”
