This measure did not or
will not appear on a ballot

A California Education Tax Relief Act (09-0046) did not qualify for the November 2, 2010 ballot in California as an initiated constitutional amendment.

On October 1, 2009, Lee W. Olson filed a request with the Office of the California Attorney General for an official ballot title on an act that he is calling the "California Education Tax Relif Act."

The attorney general's office has provided that title, so the measure is cleared for circulation with a circulation deadline of April 23, 2010.

Proposed changes

If this measure succeeds, it will add a new Section 17 to Article IX of the California Constitution, which will read:

(a) This Act shall be known as the "California Education Tax Relief Act.
(b) Notwithstanding any provision of the Constitution to the contrary, no property, sales or income taxes shall be levied or assessed to pay for any free school provided for under Section 5 of Article 9, nor to pay for any Public School System or into the State School Fund provided for under Section 6 of Article 9, nor to pay for textbooks provided for under Section 7.5 of Article 9, nor to pay for the University of California provided for under Section 9 of Article 9.


Ballot title: Prohibits Public Funding of Schools Through Taxes. Initiative Constitutional Amendment.

Official summary: Prohibits property, sales, or income taxes from being used to fund California's public schools, colleges, and universities, or to buy textbooks for grades one through eight.

Estimated fiscal impact: Elimination of most existing state and local government funding for education programs. Likely major shifts in state and local government budgeting.
