Initiative supersedes existing laws and its provisions are severable. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure will not result in any direct impact on state and local governments since the provisions of the measure would affect the relationships between public sector exclusive representatives and their represented employees.
