SB 50 referendun and initiative

From: domainremoved <Gary>
Date: Tue, 9 Apr 2019 05:35:51 +0000 (UTC)

 City Council: I am attaching a page consisting of sections 8 and 9 of Article 2 of the California Constitution concerning the powers of initiative and referendum. If SB 50 is signed into law, citizens would have only 90 days to circulate a referendum petition to suspend the law pending a vote at next year's statewide general election - or sooner if placed on an earlier special election ballot as explained in section 9. An initiative petition can propose a statute or a constitutional amendment. An initiative might propose, for example, to add language to the state constitution to give cities and counties some authority over basic land-use decisions which the State could not disregard.  Sincerely, Gary Wesley, resident of Mountain View.
