AB 48 + Proposition 13
In accordance with state guidelines, California Secretary of State Alex Padilla has announced the official numbers for propositions qualified for the March 3, 2020, Presidential Primary Election. The bond bill–AB 48 (O’Donnell)—has been officially designated as Proposition 13.
The next step is for the Attorney General to publish the official ballot label by November 1, 2019.
Questions may arise as to why the State is “re-using” such a prominent proposition number. In 1998, ballot measures were restarted at “1,” and since then have been reset every 10 years. As such, AB 48 was assigned the number 13 because it was the next number available.
