	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 2294, as introduced, Fletcher. Initiative and referendum
petitions: circulation requirements.
   Existing law authorizes a person who is a registered voter or who
is qualified to register to vote in this state to circulate an
initiative or referendum petition anywhere within the state. Existing
law requires that each section of an initiative or referendum
petition bear the name of a county or city and county, and allows
only qualified registered voters of that county or city and county to
sign that section of the petition.
   This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to these
provisions.
   Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.

county, and only qualified registered voters of that county or city
and county may sign that section.
