REAPPORTIONMENT BASED ON REGISTERED VOTERS. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Amends present state constitutional requirement that California Senatorial, Assembly, and Board of Equalization districts shall be reasonably equal, based on district population, determined from national census data taken at beginning of each decade. Instead requires: Assembly districts be composed of reasonably equal numbers of registered voters, defined as a registered voter who has voted in either of the last two general elections or legally registered subsequent to those elections; Senate districts be comprised of two Assembly districts; Board of Equalization Districts be comprised of ten Senate districts. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: The consolidation of the Senate district boundaries would result in minor savings to each county during election years beginning in 1992 due to the reduction in the number of different ballot formats.
