CSAC OFFICERS REFER BALLOT MEASURES TO POLICY COMMITTEES
The process for CSAC taking a position on ballot measures begins with the officers referring measures to policy committees. They have done so, and the committees will hold special meetings over the following weeks to consider recommending positions to the CSAC Board of Directors. The referrals are as follows:
- Proposition 18 (Water Bond) – Agriculture and Natural Resources
- Proposition 19 (Legalize, Regulate, and Tax Marijuana) – Administration of Justice and Government Finance & Operations
- Proposition 21 ($18 per Vehicle Fee for State Parks) – Agriculture and Natural Resources
- Proposition 23 (Suspends AB 32) – Agriculture and Natural Resources
- Proposition 26 (2/3 Vote for State and Local Fees and Charges) – Government Finance & Operations
CSAC will send an email to all Supervisors, County Administrative
Officers/County Executive Officers, and County Counsels when the
dates for all three policy committees are set.
