Members of a pro-Constitutional convention group are submitting two ballot measures today calling for a state convention in early 2011.

Members of the group Repair California hope to place the measures–one allowing Californians to call for a Constitutional convention and another to actually call for the event and lay out the format–on the November 2010 ballot.

The group will hold a news conference today at 11:30 a.m. outside the Attorney General’s Office in Sacramento.

After the ballot language is submitted, the group must gather and submit sufficient signatures to secure its place on next year’s ballot.

Repair California, which is sponsored by the Bay Area Council, advocates overhauling the state Constitution to change the state’s budget, election and revenue distribution process.
