Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: If adopted in June 1990, measure would reduce 1990-91 contingent fund appropriations for direct support of Assembly and Senate by $21 million plus what would have been the incremental growth in such appropriations between fiscal years 1989-90 and 1990-91. Thereafter, measure would set an upper limit on the growth in such appropriations. Costs of implementing the new budget control and quarterly expense reporting activities would not be substantial.
