Prohibits state and local government employers from allowing deduction from a government employee's pay, whether the deduction is voluntary or not, if money from the deduction will be used by a public employee labor organization or its sponsored committee for political purposes. Excludes from the prohibition an employee's voluntary authorized deductions for charitable organizations and employee health benefits. Excludes existing collective bargaining agreements, but prohibits future collective bargaining agreements or extensions of agreements that conflict with this measure. Adopts certain definition in the Political Reform Act. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Probably minor state and local government processing costs, potentially offset by fee revenues.
