Statewide, CA

Type: Other

Outcome: Win

Results: Failed, 52% - 48%

An anti-transit measure called the "No Blank Checks Initiative" looks like it is headed to the ballot in November.  Sponsored by Stockton farmer and businessman Dean Cortopassi, Proposition 53 would require a public vote on any state project in which $2 billion or more in revenue bonds would be issued. As the CA high-speed rail project would most likely exceed this cap, this measure could impede the project if passed.  The CA Sec. of State is set to release the final list of statewide measures July 7th.
