SECTION 33378-33378.5

33378. With respect to ordinances subject to referendum pursuant to
Sections 33365 and 33450 which provide for tax-increment financing
pursuant to Section 33670 or expand a project area subject to such
tax-increment financing, the language of the statement of the ballot
measure shall be approved by the county clerk and shall set forth
with clarity and in language understandable to the average person
that a "Yes" vote is a vote in favor of adoption or amendment of the
redevelopment plan and a "No" vote is a vote against the adoption or
amendment of the redevelopment plan.
Notwithstanding any other provision of law, including the charter
of any city or city and county, referendum petitions circulated in
cities or counties over 500,000 population shall bear valid
signatures numbering not less than 10 percent of the total votes cast
within the city or county for Governor at the last gubernatorial
election and shall be submitted to the clerk of the legislative body
within 90 days of the adoption of an ordinance subject to referendum
under this article.
Such referendum measure shall include, in the ballot pamphlet, an
analysis by the county auditor/controller and, at the option of the
city, a separate analysis by the city or the agency, of the
redevelopment plan or amendment which will include (1) an estimate of
the potential impact on property taxes per each ten thousand dollars
($10,000) of assessed valuation for taxpayers located in the city or
county, as the case may be, outside the redevelopment project area
during the life of the redevelopment project and (2) an estimate of
what would happen to the project area in the absence of the
redevelopment project. Such analysis shall include the impact of
potential increases in city, county, school district, and special
district taxes, both over the total life of the project and also on
the basis of the average annual impact.


33378.5. The provisions of this part establishing a right of
referendum shall not be applicable to a charter city in the County of
Los Angeles containing a population of 1,000 or less until January
1, 1983.
