The California Initiative Review (CIR) is a non-partisan, objective Web publication which provides comprehensive, independent analyses of California Ballot initiatives and related issues. The review is produced each year by the Capital Center for Law & Policy at our California Initiative Forum.
At every statewide election in California, voters make choices about candidates and ballot propositions. Statewide ballot measures, including initiatives and referendums, are a form of direct democracy and allow voters to have a voice in the laws that will govern them.
In an effort to aid voters in exercising their choice, students in the California Initiative Seminar course at McGeorge study and analyze all statewide ballot measures for each California election. Their objective analyses are published here as the California Initiative Review (CIR).
For the complete text of the above initiatives, visit the California secretary of State's website.
The June 2006 Initiative Reviews were prepared under the supervision of Mary-Beth Moylan, Assistant Director, Appellate Advocacy and Lecturer in Law, for the Capital Center for Government and Policy/Governmental Affairs Program.
