A California Article V Convention Initiative (11-0003) was cleared for circulation for California's 2012 ballot as an initiated state statute. However, sponsors of 11-0003 did not submit the required signatures by the September 26, 2011 deadline and therefore, #10-0021 will not be on the ballot.

A letter requesting a title and summary for the proposed initiative was signed by Christopher A. Brown, and was received by the Attorney General of California's office on March 10, 2011.
