California Proposition 77 (2005)
|Elections in California|
From the California Attorney General:
- Amends process for redistricting California Senate, Assembly, Congressional and Board of Equalization districts.
- Requires panel of three retired judges, selected by legislative leaders, to adopt new redistricting plan if measure passes and after each national census.
- Panel must consider legislative, public comments/hold public hearings.
- Redistricting plan effective when adopted by panel and filed with California Secretary of State; governs next statewide primary/general elections even if voters reject plan.
- If voters reject redistricting plan, process repeats, but officials elected under rejected plan serve full terms.
- Allows 45 days to seek judicial review of adopted redistricting plan.
Summary of Legislative Analyst's estimate of net state and local government fiscal impact:
- One-time costs for a redistricting plan. State costs totaling no more than $1.5 million and county costs in the range of $1 million.
- Potential reduction in costs for each redistricting effort after 2010, but net impact would depend on decisions by voters.
The proposition was rejected with a margin of 19.4% of voters rejecting it (About 1,474,930 ballots).
