SJR 8201 would prohibit the Secretary of State from accepting for filing an initiative measure if, on the advice of the Attorney General, it is determined that the measure will result in state expenditures that are not in compliance with any statutory state balanced budget requirement in effect on the date that the initiative is filed. The provision, however, does not preclude the filing of an initiative measure to repeal or amend an increase in a state tax if the measure is filed within one year following the enactment of the increase.
