A new report suggests that although Californians strongly support the state’s initiative process, they’d like to see changes to limit the power of special interests and increase the role of the legislature.
The report comes from the Public Policy Institute of California. It analyzed its polling data to determine whether several potential initiative process changes would be popular. Turns out they are, says the PPIC’s Mark Baldassare. For example:
Californians are now more likely to urge swift state action to slow global warming than they were during the recession. Ben Adler has more from Sacramento on that and other findings from the Public Policy Institute of California’s new poll on environmental issues.
