Adds constitutional provision permitting use of Authorized or King James Bible (including translators' preface and introductory remarks, standard concordance and glossary) as a textbook for voluntary study of the Bible as literature, without devotional or denominational purpose. This textbook would be provided without cost to each pupil in grades one through twelve whose parents do not object and elect to opt out of study program. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Additional costs to the state and/or school districts from providing copies of the Bible to students: (1) one-time costs in the tens of millions of dollars up to $200 million and (2) annual costs in the low millions to tens of millions of dollars. .
