A Public Pension and Retirement Systems Required to Invest in California Businesses Act (11-0018) was cleared for circulation for California's 2012 ballot as an initiated constitutional amendment. However, sponsors of 10-0018 did not submit the required signatures by the January 12, 2012 deadline and therefore, #11-0018 will not be on the ballot.

The letter requesting a title and summary for the proposed initiative was signed by Michael Lee Madsen, Sr.

(This is a summary of the initiative's estimated "fiscal impact on state and local government" prepared by the California Legislative Analyst's Office and the Director of Finance.)

"Potential increase in state and local pension contribution costs of billions of dollars per year (as measured in today’s dollars), depending on how this measure is implemented. Unknown, but likely not significant, net long-term change in state economic activity and related state and local revenues."
