Schwarzenegger & The Propositions
"Proposition 74 extends the period of time teachers need to win permanent tenure, while Proposition 75 requires public service unions to obtain members' permission each year to use dues for political campaigns, a move that will hurt the Democratic Party which depends on the support of unions.

Proposition 76 caps the amount of money the debt-ridden state can spend each year and allow the governor to make mid-year budget cuts, while Proposition 77 would remove the Democrat-dominated state legislature's power to redraw political boundaries and give it to an appointed panel of three retired judges."
