SAN DIEGO (AP) – California voters have approved a pair of ballot measure aimed at aiding low-income veterans with housing and opening up government records to more public scrutiny.

Proposition 41 led with 66 percent of the vote, with 1.8 million ballots counted. It redirects $600 million in existing veterans bonds to buy, build and renovate apartments and multi-family homes for low-income veterans

Proposition 42 amends the state constitution to require that governments pay for complying with state transparency laws. It is ahead with 60 percent of the vote, also with 1.8 million ballots counted.

They were the only two propositions on Tuesday’s ballot.
