REAPPORTIONMENT BY SUPREME COURT. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Amends the Constitution to provide that the state Supreme Court, instead of the Legislature, shall adjust the boundary lines of Senatorial, Assembly, Congressional, and Board of Equalization districts in the year following the national census taken each decade. Allows Supreme Court to appoint Special Masters to hold public hearings with respect to proposed reapportionment plans. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: The measure could result in net costs or savings once every decade depending upon the costs to the Supreme Court to establish the boundary lines. The net fiscal effect is unknown, but probably not significant.
