Sec. § 7902.1


If, beginning with the 1980–81 fiscal year or any fiscal year thereafter, the proceeds of taxes of a school district, community college district, or county superintendent of schools, exceed its appropriations limit determined pursuant to Section 7902 for that fiscal year, the governing body of the school district or community college district, or the county superintendent of schools, may increase its appropriations limit to an amount equal to its proceeds of taxes.


In the event that the governing body of a district or the county superintendent of schools increases its appropriations limit pursuant to this section, it shall notify the Director of Finance of the change within 45 days.


Any increase in a local jurisdiction’s appropriations limit pursuant to this section shall, in the fiscal year in which the change is made, reduce the appropriations limit of the state by an equal amount.
