Note: California's 3rd District Court of Appeals is considering a lawsuit filed by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association that challenges the order in which the propositions were numbered by California's Secretary of State Debra Bowen. The day after Bowen assigned the numbers, the court said they wanted to hear a justification from Bowen by July 30 about the way she numbered the propositions. This situation means that the order (and numbers) of the state's November propositions might still change. In the argument she filed with the court by the July 30 deadline, Debra Bowen "offered no legal arguments defending" the ballot re-ordering and instead argued that too many logistical problems would result from having to change the order again.
1. Are the summaries written by BP editors, or are they copied from official state sources? 2. I'm not seeing any place I can edit them. 3. The following summaries are incorrect: 35) Should be "Increase Penalties for Human Trafficking and Sex Slavery" (the current summary implies that it is not currently prohibited) 36) Should be "Modify 'Three Strikes' Law" (the law will not be completely repealed).Vch1480 20:01, 8 October 2012 (CDT)
