"California voters have rejected a $15 billion bond...."
"The opposition was led by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, which took particular issue with a provision that would have increased the limit on what a local school district could borrow, from 1.25% to 2% of assessed property value. The group feared that could have led to future tax increases to pay back the debt. The state should fund school facilities itself rather than adding to school districts' debt, the group said."
You want hope? Here's hope. California's local voters rejected 60% of local tax measures and nearly 70% of local bond measures. Historically voters APPROVE 70% of local tax measures and 80% (or more) of bonds. Harvesting will reverse some, but not all.https://t.co/9stayp3lEh— Edward Ring (@edring) March 11, 2020

San Francisco Chronicle editorial page editor asks if the defeat of the "Proposition 13" school bond heralds the launch of a new tax revolt? https://t.co/HXDy5KgT18— HJTA.org (@HJTA) March 9, 2020
Tuesday was a bad day for the 120 local school bond measures and 28 parcel taxes ... it’s evident already that a historically high percentage of bonds and parcel taxes will fail. https://t.co/1MM5FC5KWY— HJTA.org (@HJTA) March 7, 2020
