A California Referendum on AB 131, the Nonresident Tuition Act (#11-0050) failed to qualify for the state's 2012 ballot.

11-0050 was an attempt to use California's veto referendum process to overturn AB 131, the so-called "Non-Resident Tuition Act."

Ballot title:

Referendum to Overturn State Financial Aid for Undocumented Students.

Official summary:

"If signed by the required number of registered voters and filed with the Secretary of State, this petition will place on the statewide ballot a challenge to a state law previously approved by the Legislature and Governor. The law must then be approved by a majority of voters at the next statewide election to go into effect. The law would allow students who are undocumented immigrants and attended a California high school for three or more years, and graduated, to receive state financial aid to attend California universities and community colleges."
