The Center for Governmental Studies (CGS) has published a comprehensive overview of California’s 2008 redistricting reform proposals to assist legislators, the media, and interested citizens in understanding and comparing the measures. In an easy-to-read chart format, the Overview (pdf) details the major provisions of California’s current redistricting law and compares them with the pending legislative and ballot initiative proposals listed below:

  • The current redistricting law, Article XXI of the California Constitution
  • Voters FIRST Initiative, Proposition 11, sponsored by California Common Cause, AARP, Governor Schwarzenegger and the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce
  • Assembly Constitutional Amendment 1 (ACA 1) and AB 3069, sponsored by former Speaker of the California Assembly Fabian Núñez
  • The model redistricting plan previously developed by CGS and other civic organizations
