Cost To File Ballot Measure in California Jumps From $200 To $8,000 Following Kill All Gays Initiative

The assembly just passed a bill raising the filing fee from $200 to $8,000.

The increase is designed to discourage outlandish ballot measures in a response to an initiative that would authorize the killing of gays and lesbians.
