REAPPORTIONMENT BY COMPUTER FORMULA. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Provides for reapportionment by use of computer technology. Specifies population percentages, perimeters of districts, irregular boundaries, natural peninsulas, and islands. Requires minimum weighted totals for district boundaries, as specified, and defines composition of state Senate and Assembly districts, congressional districts, and Board of Equalization districts. Limits reapportionment computer contract to businesses based in the United States, requires appropriation by Legislature and provides if Legislature and Governor fail to comply with provisions, one-half of salary of various state officials shall be withheld until compliance. Contains other provisions. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would result in unknown net savings to state funds in 1991-92 and on a decennial basis thereafter, depending upon the number of reapportionment contracts issued by the Governor and legislative activities. The measure would result in minor local costs to counties in 1992, and on a decennial basis thereafter, which would be fully offset by savings in election years for the consolidation of district boundaries due to the reduction in the number of ballot types.
