LOCAL PROPERTY TAX. REVENUE ALLOCATION. LOCAL GOVERNMENT CONTROL. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Requires Legislature to return control of local property taxes to local government and revise tax allocation system within three years to meet this requirement. Establishes fixed apportionment of local property tax revenues: 50% to cities and counties for municipal services; 50% to finance county's public schools. Permits cities and counties to allocate portions of their share to special districts. Prohibits further collection of property tax revenues for Educational Revenue Augmentation Funds. Legislature remains obligated to meet its school funding obligations, but not from local revenue sources. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Increased state costs for education of about $400 million annually. Unknown, but likely significant, shifts in revenues among cities, counties, and special districts.
