Summary:
Existing provisions of the California Constitution provide that the initiative is the power of the electors to propose statutes and amendments to the Constitution and to adopt or reject those proposals.

Existing provisions of the California Constitution provide that the initiative is the power of the electors to propose statutes and amendments to the Constitution and to adopt or reject those proposals. Those provisions require the Secretary of State to submit a certified initiative measure at the next general election held at least 131 days after it qualifies or at any special statewide election held prior to that general election. The Governor may also call a special statewide election on the measure.

This measure would increase that minimum time period for the submission of a certified initiative measure to at least 176 days after it qualifies and would require the Secretary of State to transmit a copy of a certified initiative measure to each house of the Legislature no later than 176 days prior to the election at which the measure is to be voted upon. Within 30 days, the Legislature may propose an amended form of the initiative measure by adopting a concurrent resolution. If the Legislature proposes an amended form of the initiative measure, the measure would provide that if the proponent, or a majority of the proponents if there is more than one proponent, of the initiative measure accepts the proposed amendments, the Legislature’s proposal would be placed on the ballot in place of the certified initiative measure. The measure would provide, if the amended form proposed by the Legislature is not accepted, that this substitution not be made and would require that the certified initiative measure be placed on the ballot.

The measure would make conforming election changes. Hide
