11 Measures Make California Ballot

SACRAMENTO (AP) - Eleven measures have qualified for California's November ballot.

They include proposals that would ban gay marriage, take the power to draw legislative districts away from lawmakers, provide funding for a high-speed rail system and set enclosure standards for farm animals.

There will also be propositions on the ballot to promote renewable energy and alternative-fuel vehicles, require parental notification before a minor has an abortion and combat gangs.

There could be more measures. The Legislature still has time to ask voters to approve additional proposals when they go to the polls on November 4th.

But the total number of November ballot measures is unlikely to break a record. That was set in November 1914, when there were 48 propositions on the ballot.
