REPEAL OF PROPOSITION 209. PUBLIC EMPLOYMENT, EDUCATION, AND CONTRACTING. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Repeals article I, section 31, of the California Constitution which was added by the passage of Proposition 209 at the November 1996 general election. Article I, section 31, generally prohibits state and local governmental agencies and public schools, colleges, and universities from discriminating against, or granting preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This initiative could result in state and local government costs, depending on future action by the state and local governments to either restructure existing programs or expand or add new preference-based affirmative action programs.
