Gov. Jerry Brown wants the state to cease issuing K-12 construction bonds, leaving school districts to pay the tab to build schools. A coalition of districts and the building industry says it will put a $9 billion bond before voters next year.
Update: After a week in legislative limbo, a bill that would have placed a $4.3 billion school construction bond on the November ballot is now officially dead. With a veto by Gov. Jerry Brown likely, Assemblywoman Joan Buchanan, D-Alamo, pulled AB 2235.
