Group pushing for new Calif. consistution suspends campaign

SAN FRANCISCO — The group pushing for a constitutional convention to reform California’s government says it’s suspending its campaign, citing lack of funding.

Repair California has been trying to gather enough signatures to put a proposal on the November ballot to call the constitutional convention. Calling California’s government “dysfunctional,” it says the convention is needed to reduce the influence of special interest groups and end gridlock in Sacramento.

Group leaders said Friday that they don’t have enough money to continue their campaign but will reassess in March.

Critics of the group say the proposal could open the constitution to a wide array of changes that have nothing to do with governance issues.
