Launching another effort to try and change the redistricting process for the California Legislature, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s campaign committee on Friday announced a $50,000 contribution toward a signature drive that seeks to qualify a redistricting ballot measure in November.

“I have been fighting for redistricting reform since I took office and I have worked to pass reforms through the Legislature over the past several legislative sessions,” the governor said in a statement. “Unfortunately, I do not think the Legislature will take action to address this issue and I believe the California Voters FIRST Act is the best opportunity we have to return the power to choose politicians to California voters.”
