Governor Brown's tax extension proposal wouldn’t be the only measure considered by voters if the plan is scheduled for a June statewide special election. Two initiatives have qualified for the next statewide election, currently scheduled for the February 2012 presidential primary, and would be bumped up if an election is called. The first is another proposal to alter term limits, allowing state legislators to serve 12 years consecutively in one house or split the time between the Assembly and Senate. The second measure would raise the tobacco tax by $1 a pack to fund cancer research and smoking prevention programs.
