STATE AND LOCAL APPROPRIATIONS LIMIT ADJUSTMENT: CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Constitution limits tax revenues state and local governments annually appropriate for expenditure, but allows adjustments for changes in "cost of living" and "population." Currently, "cost of living" defined as lesser of change in US Consumer Price Index or California per capita personal income. Measure redefines standard as the greater of change in California Consumer Price Index or California per capita personal income. "State population" redefined: includes increases in K-12 or community college average daily attendance greater than state population growth. Local government "population" redefined: includes increases in both residents and persons employed. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: The state's appropriations limit is estimated to increase by approximately $800 million in 1988-89 and by increasing amounts thereafter. Indeterminable effect on the appropriations limits of other public entities. Cost of Commission on State Finance report required by this measure would probably be less than $500,000 annually.
