Amends California Constitution to require that any initiative statute or constitutional amendment providing for voter or representative approval by a greater than majority percent of the vote must itself be approved by the same percent of the vote. Does not apply to vote requirements imposed by voters on the Legislature to amend a ballot measure. Applies to measure on current and future ballots, to creation of new vote requirements, and increase of existing vote requirements. Includes provision preventing legal conflicts in event that other measures on same ballot include vote requirements. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on the state and local governments: Unknown fiscal impact on state and local governments. Impact would depend on future ballot measures submitted to the electorate and the voting results of those measures.
