A California Road Repairs Initiative was approved for circulation in California as a contender for the November 4, 2014 ballot as an initiated constitutional amendment. Two versions of the initiative (#13-0045, #13-0046) were filed in quick succession in November 2013, and both were approved for circulation.

Its sponsors, however, dropped all efforts to get the measure on the ballot.[1]
