Would 13's passage mean greater state control? STANFORD (UPl) — Passage Passage of Propostion 13, the Jarvis-Gann property tax initiative, would accelerate a trend toward increased state control of local decisions, a Stanford professor said today. J. Michael Cummins, with the help of a graduate student, Alan Rappaport, prepared charts showing Jarvis-Gann's impact would vary widely but would produce an average 18.6 percent loss in total county revenues. Becaiise in urban counties property taxes provide only a portion of total revenue, the overall impact in San Frands- co, for example, would be a 19 percent decline in city and county revenue and -a 37 percent drop in school revenue. Alameda and San Francisco counties would lose 60 percent of property lax revenues, but Mariposa would lose nothing.
