The Citizens Fair Districts Act initiated constitutional amendment
proposal would have amended the process for redistricting California’s
Legislature, Board of Equalization, and U.S. House of Representative districts.
Establishes Citizens Redistricting Commission comprised of 11 qualified registered voters formed by the Secretary of State pursuant to detailed selection process. The Commission would design a new plan after every national census and hold public hearings and receive public input before finalizing the redistricting plan. Requires legal challenges to be made within 45 days of certification of plan.
Potentially increased redistricting costs every ten years—probably of less than $1 million.
