The California School Boards Association wasted no time in reissuing its call for the Legislature to repeal the cap on school districts’ budget reserves, which the association calls fiscally irresponsible.
Voter support for Proposition 2, a new version of a state budget rainy day fund, is increasing but is still shy of the majority backing that Gov. Jerry Brown will need to pass his signature ballot measure, according to a new poll.
Gov. Jerry Brown won’t have key education groups helping him make the case to voters for a bigger and more restrictive state rainy day fund. The most he can count on is they won’t actively campaign against it.
Earlier this year, the secretary of state’s office gave sponsors of six proposed education-related ballot measures the go-ahead to collect the 505,000 signatures each needed to appear on the November ballot. None qualified.
