Unlike in California, requiring presidential candidates to release tax returns failed in Illinois

A new California law requiring presidential candidates to release five years of tax returns to qualify for the state’s primary ballot is similar to a measure an Illinois state senator called “the most clearly unconstitutional legislative proposal” he ever voted on. The bill passed the Illinois Senate on partisan lines earlier this year before stalling in a House committee.

Senator files bill banning cancer-causing ethylene oxide emissions
