Analysis: The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act

The California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act, known as Schools and Communities First, is a statewide ballot measure that seeks to make changes to some provisions of California’s landmark 1978 property tax limitations, Proposition 13. Schools and Communities First is the first qualifying initiative that would make changes to Proposition 13 in over 40 years. The ballot initiative would raise an estimated $12 billion in local revenue to schools and local governments by amending the tax rates for commercial and industrial properties.
