Bill Subjects

Referendum Measures.

Abstract

(1) Existing law specifies the order in which statewide ballot measures are required to appear on the ballot, with referendum measures required to be last after all initiative measures. This bill would instead require initiative and referendum measures to appear in the order in which they qualify for the ballot. (2) The California Constitution provides that the electors may approve or reject a statute by referendum. Senate Constitutional Amendment 1 of the 2021–22 Regular Session, if approved by the voters, would require that the ballot for a referendum measure provide that a "Yes" vote is in favor of the referendum and rejects the statute or part of the statute subject to the referendum, and a "No" vote is against the referendum and approves the statute or part of the statute subject to the referendum, thus requiring a majority vote in favor of the referendum to reject the statute or part of the statute subject to the referendum. This bill would make conforming statutory changes contingent on the approval of the voters of SCA 1 of the 2021–22 Regular Session.
