A resolution to propose to the people of the State of California an amendment to the Constitution of the State, by amending Section 12 of Article IV thereof, relating to the Legislature.


Existing constitutional provisions require that the Budget Bill be introduced in each house immediately after the Governor submits his or her budget to the Legislature. Existing constitutional provisions also require the Legislature to pass the Budget Bill by midnight on June 15 of each year. This measure would require that the Budget Bill and any budget implementation bill, as defined, be printed and distributed to the members of a house considering either bill and made available to the public at least 21 calendar days before a vote in that house on the passage of either bill. The measure would provide that its requirements could be satisfied by electronic publication and distribution of the bills.
