Fiscal estimate

The fiscal estimate provided by the California Legislative Analyst's Office said:

  • The measure would have no direct fiscal impact on state and local governments.
  • If the Legislature establishes a new exemption that is similar to the one now provided totally disabled veterans, the measure would reduce local property tax revenues by potentially millions of dollars annually.

Path to the ballot

The California State Legislature voted to put Proposition 160 on the ballot in Assembly Constitutional Amendment 40 (Statutes of 1992, Resolution Chapter 49).
