Californians Reject Five of Nine Ballot Measures

Share | |
(Sacramento, CA)
Wednesday, November 3, 2010
Californians didn't like five of the nine propositions they voted on this election.
Among the measures they approved was Proposition 25, which establishes that only a simple majority is needed in the legislature to pass a state budget. Until now, it took a two-thirds vote.
But Californians also passed Prop 26 that makes it harder to introduce certain fees, and therefore harder to pass a budget.
Voters widely approved Prop 22 - that one prohibits the state from borrowing money from local governments to balance its budget.
They also approved Proposition 20, which expands the power of the Citizens Redistricting commission to draw Congressional districts. Conversely, they turned down a measure to scrap the Redistricting Commission.
They also rejected a measure to legalize recreational use of marijuana, and another that would have suspended the state's greenhouse gas emissions standards.
And they turned down two other tax related initiatives.
