REAPPORTIONMENT BY COMMISSION. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE. Amends state Constitution. Requires 12-person Commission, appointed by retired appellate justices, adjust boundaries of California Senatorial, Assembly, Congressional, and Board of Equalization districts. Commissioners appointed from nominees of non-partisan, non-profit state organizations. Requires Commission review plans submitted by registered voters and adopt plan or amended plan which complies with standards. Each district's population may vary no more than 1% from average district population. Senatorial districts formed from two adjacent Assembly districts, Board of Equalization districts from 10 adjacent Senate districts. Elections held for all Senate and Assembly seats in 1992. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Measure provides that the 1990-91 appropriation for Commission shall be $3.5 million and no other public funds shall be appropriated or expended for reapportionment. Future decennial appropriations will be adjusted for increases in the Consumer Price Index and for any previously unexpended funds. Measure will result in minor savings and minor costs to the counties due to changes in ballot format. The net effect is unknown but probably minor.
