Proposition 20 passed in November 1972. It created six regional commissions and one statewide commission to oversee the use and development of California's 1,000 mile coastline, and was designed to address the state legislature's failure to produce an acceptable compromise measure regarding coastal ecology, protection, and preservation. Proposition 20 was, from the start, very controversial. Business and labor banded together in their opposition to the initiative; two of every three daily newspapers in California joined this odd coalition, as did numerous civic and service groups. The collection consists of materials regarding the Proposition 20 campaign from 1972, most of which are from organization's working to defeat the measure.
