A California Property Tax Exemption for Severely Disabled Veterans Initiative (#12-0002) was approved for circulation in California as a contender for the November 6, 2012 ballot.

Its sponsors, however, did not submit any signatures to election officials by the deadline.

Rashid El Malik, the originator of the initiative, referred to it as the "Brain Syndrome and Severely Disabled Veterans Property Tax Exemption Initiative."
