Financing California Counties
A history of the county-state revenue relationships
Have you found yourself overwhelmed trying to understand the county revenue sources and funding stream? And how we ended up with this complex system? This course provides an in-depth examination of county revenue sources and how they have evolved. Exploring the context of county funding decisions by Legislative and the Administration over the last 40 years is critical in understanding the current state-county funding and revenue relationships. The class examines the history and consequences of major elements in county revenues including: Proposition 13, 172, 1A, Vehicle License Fees, Realignment, ERAF, property tax allocations and more. You’ll leave with a clearer appreciation and understanding of county revenues.
