New Initiative Filed To Change Super-Majority Vote Requirements

Here is an article from the Los Angeles Times on the filing of a new initiative that would lower the super-majority requirement for passing a budget. "The California Budget Efficiency Act would retain a super-majority requirement for budgets and taxes but would lower it from the current two-thirds to 55%. As a tactical matter, that would be enough for Democrats to pass budgets as the Legislature currently is constituted." Here is a link to the measure itself.
