NARRATIVE

STATE BUDGET. STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE. • Establishes two-year state budget cycle. • Prohibits Legislature from creating expenditures of more than $25 million unless offsetting revenues or spending cuts are identified. • Permits Governor to cut budget unilaterally during declared fiscal emergencies if Legislature fails to act. • Requires performance reviews of all state programs. • Requires performance goals in state and local budgets. • Requires publication of bills at least three days prior to legislative vote. • Allows local governments to alter how laws governing state-funded programs apply to them, unless Legislature or state agency vetoes change within 60 days. Summary of Legislative Analyst’s Estimate of Net State and Local Government Fiscal Impact: • Decreased state sales tax revenues of about $200 million annually, with a corresponding increase of funding to certain local governments. • Other, potentially more significant changes in state and local spending and revenues, the magnitude of which would depend on future decisions by public officials.
