State Treas­urer John Chi­ang (D) “has opened a bal­lot meas­ure com­mit­tee for the 2018 statewide elec­tion, sug­gest­ing he plans to teth­er his cam­paign to a long-planned yet un­spe­cified ini­ti­at­ive on af­ford­able hous­ing. De­tails of the hous­ing meas­ure are murky, yet a Chi­ang spokes­wo­man said Tues­day that plans were mov­ing for­ward on a 2018 pro­pos­al.”

“Can­did­ates have long tied their own pro­spects to spe­cif­ic policy pro­pos­als, with vary­ing de­grees of suc­cess. Donors can give un­lim­ited amounts to bal­lot meas­ure com­mit­tees, giv­ing the can­did­ates more op­por­tun­ity to de­liv­er their mes­sage as they cam­paign for the ini­ti­at­ive.” (Sac­ra­mento Bee)
