COMMISSION ON CIVILIAN ECONOMY. APPROPRIATION. TAX DEDUCTION. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Creates California Commission to Expand Civilian Economy. Authorizes commission to: urge United States and Soviet Union to reduce military budgets by half by 1997; request United States redirect military funds to various civilian purposes; propose legislation and programs to protect California's economy from adverse impact of transition from military to civilian economy; conduct legislative lobbying. Establishes special fund for commission with $525,000 continuous annual appropriation. Authorizes tax deductible "voluntary checkoff" on tax return for donations to fund commission. After 10 years, Legislature may terminate commission by 2/3 vote. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: Requires annual state appropriation of $525,000 (adjusted for inflation) from General Fund. Tax checkoff could result in $300,000 to $800,000 annually in additional funding which would be offset by minor state revenue losses due to tax deductibility.
