Proposition E

Voters balk at giving Board of Supervisors power to amend initiatives

Proposition E, a measure that would give the Board of Supervisors greater influence over voter-approved initiatives, was rejected Tuesday.

The measure would have allowed the board to amend or repeal initiatives passed by voters. Prop. E would have only applied to initiatives placed on the ballot by the board and mayor. Measures placed through citizen signatures would not have been subject to the law.

Under Prop. E, the Board of Supervisors would not have been able to amend or repeal an initiative until it had been enshrined in law for three years.
