97.33. Oakland/Berkeley fire property tax revenue loss. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, for the 1993–94 fiscal year, the amounts of property tax revenue that are required to be shifted pursuant to Section 97.3 from a city described in the second clause of paragraph (2) of subdivision (h) of Section 95 or a city described in paragraph (2) of subdivision (b) of Section 16700 of the Welfare and Institutions Code, and from the county in which those cities are located, to the Educational Relief Augmentation Fund, shall each be reduced by an amount equal to the sum of the property tax revenue loss incurred by the city or county as a result of the Oakland/Berkeley fire that occurred in October 1991. The auditor shall certify to the Department of Finance the amount of the property tax revenue loss for each city and the county as a result of those properties that were reassessed as a result of that fire. The property tax revenue loss shall be the difference between the property tax revenues, including property tax revenue attributable to tax rates levied pursuant to subdivision (b) of Section 1 of Article XIII A of the California Constitution, that would have been derived based on the original assessed value of those properties for the 1991–92 fiscal year prior to any reassessment for disaster relief, increased by 2 percent, and the property tax revenues derived from the assessed value of those properties for the 1992–93 fiscal year.
(b) In each of the 1994–95, 1995–96, and 1996–97 fiscal years, for the county and cities described in subdivision (a), one-third of the adjustments made pursuant to subdivision (a) for each described city and the county shall be added to the amount of property tax revenue deemed allocated to each city and the county in the prior fiscal year.
