Reforming the Initiative Process


I attended a luncheon panel discussion Oct 24th on voter initiative reform held by the Public Policy Institute of California.

The panel included

Moderator: Patt Morrison, columnist, Los Angeles Times and special correspondent, Southern California Public Radio

Willie Brown, former speaker, California State Assembly

Gray Davis, former governor, State of California

Ronald George, retired chief justice, State of California

The panelists suggested the initiative process be modified to include legislative and judicial review/input before initiatives are placed on the ballot. 

I shared a table with Richard Winger of Ballot Access News, CT Weber of the Peace and Freedom party, and two members of the League of Women Voters. We discussed the CA Sec of State race and the active candidates and how the top two primary factors in to the process.
