A California Flood Insurance Act (10-0013) did not qualify for the November 2, 2010 ballot in California as an initiated state statute.

John Kertisz filed a letter with the California Attorney General's office on January 26, 2010, requesting a ballot title. The ballot title and summary were provided on April 5, 2010, with a petition drive deadline of September 2, 2010.[1]

Text of measure

Path to the ballot

433,971 signatures were required to qualify this measure for the ballot. To qualify for the November 2, 2010 ballot, the signatures would have to be collected and submitted by early May of 2010. If the signatures were, instead, collected by the initiative's 150-day deadline of September 2, 2010, the measure would go on the ballot in a future year.
