Attorney General Receives Proposed Initiative for Title and Summary

Monday, March 8, 1999
Contact: (415) 703-5837

(SACRAMENTO) - Attorney General Bill Lockyer has received a proposed ballot initiative for preparation of title and summary.

The proposed measure would require any increases in the state tobacco tax to be passed by the Legislature and repeal Proposition 10, the California Children and Families First Act of 1998, which was approved by voters in the General Election on Nov. 3, 1998.

The proponent of the measure is Ned Roscoe of Premium Tobacco Stores, Inc. of Benicia, Calif.

The Attorney General's office will forward the official title and summary of the proposed initiative to the Secretary of State within 15 days after receiving a fiscal analysis from the state Department of Finance and the Joint Legislative Committee.
