Election Contests and Ballot Measures

November 4, 2014 California General Election

California

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

In addition to the office contest shown on our ballots, you may find additional county, city, local, and judicial office contests on the ballot you will be given at the polls. Due to our limited resources we were unable to cover those contests.

Authorize $7.12 billion in general obligation bonds for state water supply infrastructure projects, such as public water system improvements, surface and groundwater storage, drinking water protection, water recycling and advanced water treatment technology, water supply management and conveyance, wastewater treatment, drought relief, emergency water supplies, and ecosystem and watershed protection and restoration.Appropriate money from the General Fund to pay off bonds.Require certain projects to provide matching funds from non-state sources in order to receive bond funds.
Proposition 2 - Rainy Day Budget Stabilization Fund Act
If approved by voters, ACA 1 would:Require the director of finance to submit estimates of general fund revenues and expenditures for the ensuing fiscal year and the three fiscal years thereafter within ten days following the submission of proposed adjustments to the governor’s budget.Require the controller to deposit annually into the BSA: (A) 1.5 percent of general fund revenues and (B) an amount equal to revenues derived from capital gains-related taxes in situations where such tax revenues are in excess of eight percent of general fund revenues. Deposits to the BSA would begin by no later than October 1, 2015. Deposits would be made until the BSA balance reaches an amount equal to 10 percent of general fund revenues.Require that from the 2015-2016 fiscal year until the 2029-2030 fiscal year, 50 percent of the revenues that would have otherwise been deposited into the BSA must be used to pay for fiscal obligations, such as budgetary loans and unfunded state-level pensions plans. Starting with the 2030-2031 fiscal year, up to 50 percent of revenues that would have otherwise been deposited into the BSA may be used to pay specified fiscal obligations.Permit the legislature to suspend or reduce deposits to the BSA and withdraw for appropriation from the BSA upon the governor declaring a budget emergency.Create a distinct budget stabilization fund known as the “Proposition 98 Reserve” or Public School System Stabilization Account (PSSSA). The PSSSA would be funded by a transfer of capital gains-related tax revenues in excess of eight percent of general fund revenues. Funds would be appropriated from the PSSSA when state support for K-14 education exceeds the allocation of general fund revenues, allocated property taxes and other available resources.
Proposition 45 - Public Notice Required for Insurance Company Rates Initiative
If approved by voters, the initiative would:Require changes to health insurance rates, or anything else affecting the charges associated with health insurance, to be approved by the California Insurance Commissioner before taking effect.Provide for public notice, disclosure, and hearing on health insurance rate changes, and subsequent judicial review.Require sworn statement by health insurer as to accuracy of information submitted to Insurance Commissioner to justify rate changes.Exempt employer large group health plans under any circumstances.Prohibit health, auto, and homeowners insurers from determining policy eligibility or rates based on lack of prior coverage or credit history.Overall, the initiative would impose on the health insurance rate regulation system what Proposition 103 (1988) imposed on automobile and homeowners insurance.[2]Supporters refer to the initiative as the Insurance
Proposition 46 - Medical Malpractice Lawsuits Cap and Drug Testing of Doctors
If approved by voters, the initiative will:Increase the state's cap on non-economic damages that can be assessed in medical negligence lawsuits to over $1 million from the current cap of $250,000.Require drug and alcohol testing of doctors and reporting of positive tests to the California Medical Board.Require the California Medical Board to suspend doctors pending investigation of positive tests and take disciplinary action if the doctor was found impaired while on duty.Require health care practitioners to report any doctor suspected of drug or alcohol impairment or medical negligence.Require health care practitioners to consult the state prescription drug history database before prescribing certain controlled substances.Supporters of the initiative refer to it as the Troy and Alana Pack Patient Safety Act of 2014, after two children who were killed by a driver under the influence of alcohol and abused prescription drugs.The measure, if approved, would create the first law in the United States to require the random drug testing of physicians.Supporters of Proposition 46 argue that medical negligence is too common and pain and suffering damage awards are too low. Opponents say the initiative isn’t about protecting patients, but increasing medical lawsuit payouts to trial lawyers.
Proposition 47 - Reduced Penalties for Some Crimes Initiative
The initiative, if it is approved by the state's voters, would reduce the classification of most "nonserious and nonviolent property and drug crimes" from a felony to a misdemeanor.

A list of crimes that would be affected by the penalty reduction are listed below.Permit re-sentencing for anyone currently serving a prison sentence for any of the offenses that the initiative reduces to misdemeanors. About 10,000 inmates would be eligible for resentencing, according to Lenore Anderson of Californians for Safety and Justice.Require a “thorough review” of criminal history and risk assessment of any individuals before re-sentencing to ensure that they do not pose a risk to the public.Create a Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Fund. The fund would receive appropriations based on savings accrued by the state during the fiscal year, as compared to the previous fiscal year, due to the initiative’s implementation. Estimates range from $150 million to $250 million per year.Distribute funds from the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Fund as follows: 25 percent to the Department of Education, 10 percent to the Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board and 65 percent to the Board of State and Community Correction.The measure would require misdemeanor sentencing instead of felony for the following crimes:Shoplifting, where the value of property stolen does not exceed $950Grand theft, where the value of the stolen property does not exceed $950Receiving stolen property, where the value of the property does not exceed $950Forgery, where the value of forged check, bond or bill does not exceed $950Fraud, where the value of the fraudulent check, draft or order does not exceed $950Writing a bad check, where the value of the check does not exceed $950Personal use of most illegal drugsThe initiative is being pushed by George Gascón, San Francisco District Attorney, and William Lansdowne, former San Diego Police Chief.
