Amends process for redistricting Senate, Assembly, Congressional and Board of Equalization districts. Requires panel of three retired judges to adopt redistricting plan for Senate, Assembly and Board of Equalization districts when measure passes and, thereafter, following each national census. Exempts Congressional districts until after 2010 national census. Panel must consider legislative, public proposals/comments and hold public hearings. Redistricting plan becomes effective immediately when adopted by judges' panel and filed with Secretary of State. Specifies time for California Supreme Court review of redistricting plan; if plan ruled invalid, process must be repeated. 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. These costs would be accommodated within the Legislature's existing spending limit.
