In August 2011, the California Citizens Redistricting Commission completed the new Congressional and state legislative maps for the 2012-2020 elections. A referendum began in August 2011 to repeal the Senate map. Supporters have until November 13, 2011 to collect the 504,760 signatures that are required to qualify the measure for the ballot. Among the drive supporters are former Governor Pete Wilson and State Senate Minority Leader Bob Dutton.[2] Four other GOP senators immediately contributed more than $5,000 to the referendum group FAIR:[3]

Legislative scorecards

Capitol Weekly

Capitol Weekly, California's major weekly periodical covering the state legislature, publishes an annual legislative scorecard to pin down the political or ideological leanings of every member of the legislature based on how they voted on an assortment of bills in the most recent legislative session. The 2009 scores were based on votes on 19 bills, but did not include how legislators voted on the Proposition 1A (2009). On the scorecard, "100" is a perfect liberal score and "0" is a perfect conservative score. [4],[5]

On the 2009 Capitol Weekly legislative scorecard, Walters ranked as a 6. [6]
