Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local government: Increased state sales tax revenues of approximately $14 billion annually, with proceeds spent on higher teacher salaries. Additional costs to schools of about $3 billion per year to cover higher teacher pensions and certain other benefits costs resulting from‚Äîbut not funded by‚Äîthe measure. Schools and the state could take a variety of actions to bring required spending in line with available resources. Increased state costs of about $1 billion per year to cover higher teacher pensions. Potential state actions‚Äîsuch as lowering spending on other programs‚Äîto keep state spending from exceeding the state's constitutional limit.
