Props 20 and 27, a Recipe for Confusion

Hosted by

Two years ago, California voters decided to set up an independent commission to draw the boundaries for legislative districts, a job now done every ten years by the lawmakers themselves. Governor Schwarzenegger and others claimed that was the source of legislative gridlock in Sacramento and more than 50 percent of the voters agreed. Proposition 20 on this year's ballot would extend the panel's authority to Congressional district boundaries. Prop 27 would abolish the panel before it's even created.
