The collection consists of materials regarding the Proposition 20 campaign from 1972, most of which are from organizations
which worked to defeat the measure.
The voters of California, by an 800,000 vote margin (55%-45%), passed the Coastal Initiative, Proposition 20, in November
1972. The proposition created six regional commissions and one statewide commission to oversee the use and development of
California's 1,000 mile coastline. Members of the regional and state commissions were to be locally appointed in some instances,
with a percentage of the appointments filled by the Governor, state Senate Rules Committee, and the Speaker of the Assembly.
