Series 2 Hearing Files 1967-2001

Physical Description: 52 file folders


Hearing files are arranged chronologically by date of hearing.

Access Information

Access to audiovisual material requires the production of use copies.

Scope and Content Note

Hearing files may consist of agendas, transcripts, audiotapes, and background information for regular session hearings, as well as interim hearings and select joint hearings. Audiotapes have been separated into a cold storage vault for preservation purposes. Separation sheets within the hearing files will alert the researcher to the existence of such tapes. Some hearings are duplicates and can be found at two locations, indicated in the list of LP numbers.
Of particular interest are hearing files relating to the passage of Proposition 13 in 1978, which reduced California property taxes and created a cap to insure the rates remained at low levels. Proposition 13 generated national publicity, particularly because of its effects on the funding of California public schools. These hearing files span from 1976-1982 and cover a broad range of topics related to Proposition 13. These topics include Serrano v. Priest, the 1976 California Supreme Court case that generated Proposition 13; the Gann Initiative; and property tax assessments, exemptions and restrictions prior to and following the passage of Proposition 13.
Researchers may also be interested in other hearing file topics, which include public finance and expenditures, federal tax conformity, and the tax burden of California businesses, employers and residents.
For a chronological list of hearings, see Appendix A in Master Finding Aid at the California State Archives.
See Appendix B for LP Numbers
