Amends State Constitution's tax definitions to exclude state/local government fees charged for regulating activities in amounts not exceeding the reasonable cost of services and not based on real property values. Prohibits any new appropriations limit from applying to state/local government unless per-student public school expenditures equal or exceed average of the 10 states with highest per-student spending for elementary and high schools, and class size equals or is less than the average of 10 states with lowest class size for elementary and high schools. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: No current fiscal impact on the state or local governments. Restricts any future appropriation or spending limit from taking effect until spending on K-12 education was increased dramatically.
