As new initiatives enter circulation, fail, become eligible for, or qualify for an election ballot, the Secretary of State's office will issue initiative status updates. The updates can be found at  Initiative and Referendum Qualification Status page or by signing up for updates below.

June 5, 2018, Statewide Ballot Measures

  1. ACA 5 (Resolution Chapter 30, statutes of 2017), Frazier. Motor vehicle fees and taxes: restriction on expenditures: appropriations limit.(PDF) - codifies the use of the new gas tax.
  2. ACA 1 (Resolution Chapter 105, statutes of 2017), Mayes. Greenhouse Gas Reduction Reserve Fund. (PDF)   Creates a Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund Reserve

November 6, 2018, Statewide Ballot Measures

As of this date, 24 are cleared for circulation to collect signatures including two that have already collected the qualifying 25% of required signatures:

  1. Increases Size of Legislature and Changes Legislative Process.
  2. Bonds to Fund Projects for Water Supply and Quality, Watershed, Fish, Wildlife, Water

Among the initiatives collecting the qualifying 25% of required signatures are some I consider very interesting:

  • Veterans and Affordable Housing Bond Act of 2018.
  • Repeals Current Primary Election System in State and Congressional Elections [which provides for all candidates for an office to appear on a single primary ballot and for the two candidates with the most votes in the primary to advance to the general election, irrespective of party.]
  • Referendum to Overturn Law Defining State and Local Law-Enforcement Agencies' Participation in Specified Immigration Enforcement.
  • Establishes a Fund for Healthcare in California Exempt from Revenue Restrictions
  • Establishes Constitutional Right to Gender Identity.
  • Decriminalization of Psilocybin.
  • Directs California Legislature to Request That Congress Call a Federal Constitutional Convention to Propose Various Amendments to The United States Constitution [sounds good but really dangerous considering the anti-immigrant, gun happy, crazy climate.  Also, there isn't any guideline in the constitution about who would constitute this convention, how states or parties or interested parties would be represented.]
  • The bi-annual anti-abortion initiatives: Criminalizes Abortion as First-Degree Murder and Expands Definition of Abortion to Include Certain Forms of Birth Control. These initiatives fail to get the qualifying signatures every time, but we can't be complacent.
  • Once again:  Division of California into Three States and another initiative to become a separate nation of California
