A California Referendum on Authorization of Alternative Redevelopment Agencies (#11-0025) was cleared for circulation for California's 2012 ballot as a veto referendum. However, sponsors of 10-0025 did not submit the required signatures by the September 27, 2011 deadline and therefore, #11-0025 will not be on the ballot.

11-0025 was an attempt to use California's veto referendum process to nullify a legislative bill approved by the California State Legislature and signed by Gov. Jerry Brown. Specifically, the proposed referendum sought to overturn ABx1 27.

ABx1 27 allows municipalities throughout the state to "establish alternative redevelopment agencies, provided they make specified contributions to school districts and county offices of education, and to special fire and transit districts. If this law is not approved, redevelopment agencies will no longer be authorized."
