STATE BUDGET DELAYS. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Provides that if budget bill is not passed by the Legislature by midnight, June 15, members of Legislature shall receive no compensation, and reimbursement for travel and living expenses, for any day after that date and prior to day after passage of budget bill. Provides no adjustment may be made in compensation or reimbursement for expenses to recover amounts forfeited by failure to pass the budget bill by midnight, June 15. Repeals present provision that allows bills containing appropriations for salaries and expenses of Legislature to be sent to Governor before budget bill enacted. Fiscal impact on state and local governments: State savings cannot be estimated because the budget bill enactment date each year cannot be projected. State savings would be about $16,000 for each day the amendment's provisions are envoked.
