REAPPORTIONMENT. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Amends state constitutional provisions governing redistricting of California's Assembly, Senate, Board of Equalization and Congressional districts. Provides for three-member panel of retired judges to adopt new redistricting plan if this measure passes and again after each national census. Panel required to consider legislative and voter proposals and hold public hearings. Plan becomes effective when unanimously adopted by judges' panel and filed with Secretary of State; if plan not subsequently approved by voters, process repeats. Specifies time for judicial review of adopted redistricting plan; if plan fails to conform to requirements, court may order new plan. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: One-time state redistricting costs, probably totaling a few million dollars, with comparable savings for each redistricting effort after 2010 (once every ten years). These costs and savings would be accommodated within the Legislature's existing spending limit.
