Summary: In November of 1979, California voters approved Proposition 4, an initiative that added Article XIII B to the California Constitution. This constitutional amendment, known as the Gann Initiative, placed limits on the growth of expenditures for publicly funded programs. Division 9 of Title 1, beginning with Section 7900 of the Government Code, was then added to law to specify the process for calculating state and local government appropriation limits and appropriations subject to limitation under Article XII B of the Constitution. These constitutional and statutory sections explain and define the appropriations limit and appropriations subject to limitation as they apply to state and local government, and require that each entity of government formally "adopt" its appropriations limit for a given fiscal year.

By September 30th of each year, Education Code sections 1629 and 42132 specify that each county office and district Governing Board shall adopt a resolution identifying their estimated appropriations limits for the current year and their actual appropriations limit for the preceding year. The documentation supporting the adoption resolution shall be made available to the public.
