Indiana University Maurer School of Law
PROPOSITION 13 AT 30, Jack Citrin & Isaac Martin, eds., 2009
This chapter reflects on the ways in which California's fiscal constitution exacerbates the state's budget crises. Without institutional reform, California will likely experience repeated waves of increasingly severe budget crises throughout the coming decades. As such, this chapter presents and analyzes a number of alternatives for reforming California's fiscal constitution so as to ameliorate the dynamics currently leading to repeated harmful budget crises.
