Remember to vote YES on Proposition 13 in California’s upcoming March 3 primary election. The bond measure would bring $15 billion to California schools and colleges.
Not to be confused with the infamous Prop. 13 passed by voters in 1978, Proposition 13 this year is the School and College Facilities Bond. It will authorize $15 billion for new facilities and modernization, including $9 billion for preschool and K-12, $4 billion for universities, and $2 billion for community colleges. The state has run out of matching funds for districts since the last school bond measure was approved by voters in 2016, so it’s critically important Prop. 13 passes.
