REAPPORTIONMENT - LEGISLATIVE DISTRICTS. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Amends existing state constitutional requirements governing the reapportionment of Senatorial, Assembly, Congressional, and Board of Equalization Districts. Requires that Senatorial and Assembly Districts be nearly and reasonably equal in population of registered voters. Retains requirement that Congressional and Board of Equalization Districts be reasonably equal in population. Requires Senatorial and Assembly District reapportionment every four years. Retains requirement that Congressional and Board of Equalization Districts be reapportioned in year following year in which national census is taken. Except as noted, retains existing standards for reapportionment of Senatorial, Assembly, Congressional, and Board of Equalization Districts. Fiscal impact on state and local governments: During the 1980's two additional reapportionments of legislative districts would occur if this initiative is adopted. For each reapportionment the State would incur costs of approximately $3 million and the counties costs of approximately $1 million.
