Amends the statutory scheme authorizing distribution and governing timing of payments from the State School Fund, the primary source of annual state funding for schools. Beginning July 1, 2015, requires a three-fourths majority vote of the Legislature to defer payments to schools for more than 30 days, or to amend the statutory scheme in any other way aside from moving up the timing of distributions. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: One-time state costs in 2015-16 of up to $5.6 billion to eliminate all existing school payment deferrals. Beginning in 2015-16, more predictable cash flow for schools and lower school borrowing costs. In future years, reduced state flexibility to respond to cash or budgetary problems.
