SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA RAPID TRANSIT DISTRICT. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Under present statutes, the Southern California Rapid Transit District is governed by an eleven-member board of directors appointed by and representing various governmental agencies within the district. The board appoints and fixes the salary of a general manager. The proposed statute substitutes a single Director for the board and the general manager. The Director is to be a full-time officer elected for a four-year term by the voters residing within the district. The salary is to be the same as set for the Director of the California Department of Transportation by the Legislature. Fiscal impact on state and local governments: District expenditures will be increased $2.5 million to $3 million each four years for election costs, and reduced by $140,000 annually by elimination of board and general manager, resulting in a net increase of expenditures of approximately $2 million to $2.5 million over a four-year cycle.
