Christmas songs, divorce ban and part-time leg kaput in California
Two of the unsuccessful propositions -- an initiative to ban divorces in California and an initiative to require that California schools allow the singing of traditional Christmas songs -- achieved a certain degree of notoriety before they were ushered off the stage.
The third now-departed measure was a government reform measure to transform the California State Legislature from a full-time enterprise to a part-time enterprise. In a state where the favorability rating of the state legislature is now in the single digits, the part-time legislature initiative is one of a handful of government-reform measures that have now failed to mount a serious petition drive effort for qualification purposes.
