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 Relief Act."

The attorney general's office had provided that title, so the measure was cleared for circulation with a circulation deadline of April 23, 2010. The "California Education Tax Relief Act", however, never reached the ballot.

If this measure had succeeded, it would have added a new Section 17 to Article IX of the California Constitution, which would have read:

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

(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.
