They would be prohibited from engaging in sectarian or denominational instruction and would be subject to all state and federal nondiscrimination laws. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Over time, potential increase in state school funding costs in the billions of dollars annually.
