The California Controller Certification of Budget Amendment will not be on the November 4, 2014 ballot in California as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have required the California Controller to certify that a given budget bill does not appropriate from the General Fund an amount in excess of revenues for the fiscal year. The Controller would have had three days to certify the bill from the time of the bill's submission to the governor. The governor would not have been able to sign the bill before certification and would not be allowed to sign the bill if it was not certified. Lastly, the measure would have prohibited the legislature from adjourning until a budget bill is certified by the Controller.[1]

The proposed amendment was introduced by State Representative Brian Nestande (R-42) as Assembly Constitutional Amendment #13.[1]
