Legislative Counsel Says Schwarzenegger Can Cancel Special Election

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — An analysis released Tuesday by the nonpartisan California legislative counsel says Governor Arnold Schwarznegger has the authority to cancel the November Eighth special election.

The ruling came as a Democratic lawmaker announced he would introduce legislation calling on Schwarzenegger to scrap the election.

The developments were the latest in a series of skirmishes over the fate of Schwarzenegger´s embattled government reform agenda.

According to Deputy Legislative Counsel Christopher Dawson, the governor and not the Legislature, has sole authority to rescind a proclamation calling for a special election.

Assemblyman Johan Klehs, a Democrat from Hayward, announced that he would introduce legislation calling on Schwarzenegger to cancel the special election.
