STATE TAXES. VOTE REQUIREMENTS. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Existing law permits new or increased State taxes to be imposed by an initiative approved by a majority of voters voting in an election on the issue. This measure amends the California Constitution to require that initiatives which increase an existing State tax, or impose a new State tax, be approved by two-thirds of voters voting in an election on the issue. The measure rewords the constitutional provisions allowing the Legislature to impose new or increased taxes only when approved by a two-thirds vote of both houses of the Legislature. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: In general, the measure will result in potential reductions in state and local revenues due to additional restrictions on raising taxes.
