Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Four more proposed ballot initiatives were cleared earlier this week for signature gathering in California, which means there are a grand total of 30 initiatives and referendums now in circulation.

The latest four would tax oil and natural gas extracted in California; abolish all of the state's environmental laws and agencies and establish rights to carbon dioxide and "universal heal thyself care," among other things; legalize marijuana for adults 19 and older; and tax Schedule II, III and IV controlled substances.

Proponents face a deadline of April 19 for submitting signatures. All but the proposal to abolish environmental laws and agencies must submit nearly 505,000 valid signatures. Backers of the anti-environmental proposal must submit nearly 808,000.

Learn more about the proposals at the secretary of state's web site.
