REAPPORTIONMENT. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Requires the Judicial Council, each year following year of the national census, to appoint a 3-member panel of Special Masters to hold public hearings and prepare plans for the reapportionment of legislative, congressional, and Board of Equalization districts, in accordance with specified criteria. Requires California Supreme Court to review the reapportionment plans prepared by the Special Masters and determine whether the plans comply with the California Constitution, and permits any elector to petition the Supreme Court to challenge reapportionment plans and propose an alternative plan. Adopted plans are subject to voter approval. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: This measure would result in elections-related costs to the state in the range of about $2 million and probably minor costs to counties.
