A California Initiative Bond Proposals Required to Specify Revenue Source Amendment did not qualify for the November 2, 2010 state ballot as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment.[1]

The proposed amendment was sponsored by Sam Blakeslee (R-San Luis Obispo). It would have required any bond proposal that gets on the ballot via petition and exceeds $1 billion to specify its funding source.[1]
