LEGISLATURE: RULES, PROCEDURES, POWERS, FUNDING. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Specifies that membership on Senate and Assembly Rules committees shall consist of members from two largest parties and accords largest party a one vote majority. Specifies that membership on other house legislative committees shall be proportional to partisan composition in each house. Specifies that each house and specified legislative committees approve, among other things, by two-thirds vote, rules, committee establishment, appointments by Speaker and disbursement of funds. Reduces Legislature's support appropriations by 30%, limits future support appropriations, and requires specified public reports and audits. Specifies other procedural, operational, staffing and funding requirements. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Assuming that this measure is presented to the voters on the June 1984 ballot, and that its initial fiscal impact occurs in the 1984-85 fiscal year, we estimate that enactment of the measure would reduce state General Fund expenditures by approximately $37 million in 1984-85, and reductions of roughly the same magnitude in subsequent fiscal years. This further assumes that the amounts appropriated for the Legislature in 1983-84 are equal to the amounts proposed in the Governor's Budget for 1983-84.
