The creation of the California Constitutional Revision Commission can be found in actions and recommendations on two separate but related fronts. In 1959 the Legislature directed the Citizens' Legislative Advisory Commission to study the techniques and procedures necessary to secure a revision of the State Constitutions (Assembly, House Resolution No. 278, 1959 Regular Session). The Commission's final report recommended that Article XVIII of the California Constitution be amended to permit the Legislature to submit to the people a revised constitution, or a revision of any part, and that a commission be established by statute to make recommendations for a total or partial revision.
