Measure on California public records takes lead

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- California voters are showing solid support for a measure to require local governments to pay for making documents available to the public.

Meanwhile, another ballot measure, aimed at aiding low-income veterans with housing, was also receiving strong approval in early returns Tuesday.

Proposition 42 _ which amends the state constitution to require governments pay for complying with state transparency laws _ was favored by 61 percent of voters with 1.7 million ballots counted.

Proposition 41 led with 66 percent of the vote, also with 1.7 million ballots counted. It would redirect $600 million in existing veterans bonds to buy, build and renovate apartments and multi-family homes for low-income veterans

They are the only two propositions on Tuesday's ballot.
