Commencing 1991, an additional state General Fund cost of $5 million for public campaign financing would be partially or completely offset by state General Fund gains resulting from the repeal of existing personal income tax deduction for political campaign contributions. Commencing 1991, increased annual state administrative costs of $2.5 million for Attorney General, State Controller, Fair Political Practices Commission and Franchise Tax Board. One-time costs of $2.3 million for reprinting of tax forms.
