Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: It is estimated that the measure would have the following fiscal effects: (1) no fiscal effects on CalWORKs and Kin-GAP programs because the work requirement provisions of the measure are unenforceable; (2) . costs of at least $25 million in the Foster Care program due to the effective elimination of the Kin-GAP program; and (3) unknown costs associated with the measure's non-Cal Works and Kin-GAP-related provisions.
