California Assembly Constitutional Amendment 13
(ACA 13) was proposed for, but ultimately did not qualify for, the 2010 ballot
as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment
. It was sponsored by Edward Hernandez
, a Democrat
in the California State Assembly
ACA 13 would have required that once an initiated constitutional amendment is certified as qualified for the ballot by the California Secretary of State, it must be forwarded to the California State Legislature, where committees could make amendments to the proposed measure submitted by the people before it appears on the ballot.
