California signed a new bill that will requires presidential candidates to release their tax returns for the past 5 years, if not you won’t be on their state ballot. And because of it, Trump may not appear on the 2020 ballot unless he releases his tax returns.

The bill is a direct response to Trump’s insistence that he will not release his tax returns as presidential candidates traditionally have done, claiming he is under audit. 

“We believe that President Trump, if he truly doesn’t have anything to hide, should step up and release his tax returns,” said state Sen. Mike McGuire (D) who co-authored the bill, according to the AP.

All 10 Republicans in the state Senate voted against the bill’s passage

Similar bills are making their way through the Washington and New Jersey state legislatures.
