San Diego Government Pension Initiative Faces Petition Hurdle

September 19, 2011  | 

There has likely never been a more aggressive and contested petition drive in San Diego history than the one under way to put an initiative before voters that would end guaranteed pensions for most new city hires and give them 401(k)s instead.

It’s widely viewed as a slam dunk for passage should it appear on the June 2012 ballot, but that may not happen because of the high degree of difficulty in collecting the required 94,000-plus signatures from registered city voters in the six-month window provided under election law. Adding to that burden is the strong opposition from local labor unions that are admittedly putting up as many roadblocks as possible to thwart the effort.
