The Latest: Backer Of 3 California’s Effort Pans Court Ruling

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A venture capitalist who funded an effort to divide California in three is criticizing a state Supreme Court decision to block the measure from the November ballot. The justices said Wednesday that significant questions have been raised about the measure’s validity. They will now consider a challenge from an environmental group. Supporter Tim Draper says ballot initiatives are intended to ensure that the government represents the will of the people. He argues the court’s decision subverts the process. The environmental group argued the measure exceeded the scope of what could be passed through a simple initiative. The director of the Planning and Conservation League says it would have created chaos and not solved any of the state’s problems.
