PRESERVING MINORITY, WOMEN, DISABLED PROGRAMS IN PUBLIC CONTRACTING, EMPLOYMENT, AND EDUCATION. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Mandates continuation of existing laws that encourage participation of small businesses and minority, women, and disabled veteran business enterprises in public contracts. Requires contractors make efforts to consider such businesses as subcontractors. Mandates promotion of opportunities for minorities, women and the disabled in public employment including focused recruitment and mobility into classifications where underrepresented. Mandates continuation of existing educational opportunity programs for minorities, women, disabled, socio-economically disadvantaged, and rural high school graduates. Applies to most state and local public agencies including public schools and colleges. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would have an unknown fiscal impact on state and local governments from the required continuation of various equal opportunity programs. The measure would restrict public entities from significantly reducing costs through major program changes.
