Advocacy Needed Now: Potential Projects Funded by Governor’s FY 18-19 Budget Proposal

CASH is asking the Legislature to increase the size of FY 2018-19 State school bond sales to $3 billion.

We need all CASH members to contact their State Assembly Member and State Senator and request they increase the 2018-19 Proposition 51 bond sales to fund $3.0 billion in school facility projects awaiting action by the State Allocation Board.  To find your State Assembly Member and State Senator, please click here.

The Governor is proposing to sell $640 million in state school bonds for School Facility Program projects funded between July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019, (i.e. FY 2018-19). This amount is inadequate to meet the needs of school districts and county offices of education, which have submitted projects worth over $3.2 billion to the Office of Public School Construction (OPSC).

One tool we will use in our advocacy is showing Legislators which projects could be funded with $640 million, versus projects that could be funded with $3 billion in FY 2018-19. Click here to view the Assembly List.    Click here to view the Senate list. Continue reading
