INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT AND STATUTE.

SUMMARY

Long-term costs statewide could total in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually. Potential longer-term state savings to the extent school districts assume greater responsibility for funding school facilities.

WHAT YOUR VOTE MEANS

YES
A YES vote on this measure means: Local school bonds could be approved by a 55 percent vote rather than a two-thirds vote of the local electorate.

NO
A NO vote on this measure means: Local school bonds would continue to require approval by a two-thirds vote of the local electorate.

ARGUMENTS

PRO
Parents, business, teachers and taxpayers say “Yes on 39” to fix our classrooms and fix the way schools spend money. The California State PTA says 39 helps reduce class size and protects taxpayers and home-owners. It requires a tough 55% vote for bonds and prohibits spending on administration or bureaucracy.

CON
Proposition 39 destroys 121 year Constitutional Protection requiring two-thirds vote to approve local bonds. 39 has No property tax limits. 39 could lead to further actions which double property taxes, re-turning to pre-1978 levels. Bonds create homeowner liens. “Special Provisions” can be changed anytime without voter approval. Vote No.
