LEGISLATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. • This measure would provide a dedicated revenue source for public safety purposes. • Revenue would be distributed to cities and counties for purposes such as police, sheriffs, fire, district attorneys and corrections. • If this measure is approved by a majority of the state's voters, the tax would be collected in all counties. However, a county would be eligible to receive tax revenues beginning January 1, 1994, only if the board of supervisors votes to participate or voters within the county approve the measure by majority vote. Summary of Legislative Analyst's Estimate of Net State and Local Government Fiscal Impact: • Effective January 1, 1994, generates approximately $714 million in fiscal year 1993-94, and $1.5 billion annually thereafter, in additional sales tax revenue for counties and cities.
