Numbers Assigned To Qualified Ballot Measures
On Friday, Secretary of State Debra Bowen (D) assigned numbers to the eleven ballot measures that have qualified for the Nov. 4 ballot initiative so far. Proposition 3 seeks close to $1 billion for children's hospitals, and Proposition 4 would require parental notification before minors could undergo abortions. The parental notification measure is one of the more contentious initiatives on the ballot.
