Voters Have Decided Some Initiatives Similar To Those On Ballot

Sacramento, CA — Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has called a November special election for voters to consider three of his proposals to reshape state government.

He wants to place a cap on state spending, change the way legislative districts are drawn and make public school teachers work five years instead of two for tenure.

His supporters also are promoting a measure that would require unions to seek written permission from their members before using dues for political purposes.

Since the mid 1970s, California voters have rejected a number of measures similar to some of those Schwarzenegger is proposing.
