California Proposition 169 was on the November 2, 1993 general election ballot in California as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, where it was defeated.

Proposition 169 would have amended Article IV, Section 9 of the California Constitution to authorize one annual budget implementation bill that could cover more than a single subject. Proposition 169 would also have allowed the Governor to veto individual law changes in the California State Legislature's budget implementation bill.
