Abstract: Over the past thirty years, considerable attention has been devoted to the fiscal effects of tax and expenditure limits (TEL's) for municipal governments. Previous research has typically reached two conclusions: First, TEL's have had little impact on the size of the municipal fisc; and second, that while the size of city budgets may not have been limited, the fiscal structure of local governments has been dramatically altered. Analyses of fiscal structure have usually focused upon the revenue side of municipal budgets, pointing to decreased reliance upon local taxes and increased reliance on user charges, fees, and non-tax mechanisms. However, less attention has been devoted to the flip side of municipal budgets - expenditures and services. Have TEL's altered the structure of municipal expenditures? To begin to answer this question, this paper examines the fiscal structure of municipal expenditures in the state of California before and after the passage of Proposition 13, over a period from 1972-1997.
