1. i don't know why details are expected for revenue going into the general fund

from what i've seen, this is not a dedicated tax-to-priority path like THC-to-education, so why do we need to know exactly what the money will be spent on?

who knows what the long-term future holds? maybe that big earthquake hits and we have to allocate millions of dollars to rebuilding infrastructure? or maybe the haters are right, and it all goes to PERS? i don't know, that's one reason why we have legislators, they vote on how to spend the money. Democracy.

of course, now that this new "enumerate your expenses in advance" idea is being pushed by the media, the ballot measure (and all similar general fund increases) will likely fail, regardless of what the state could accomplish with the revenue.
