Summary

OPPOSE

Creates the Public Preschool, K–12, and College Health and Safety Bond Act of 2024 as a state general obligation bond act that would provide $15,500,000,000 to “construct and modernize” education facilities. This bond act would become operative only if approved by the voters at the March 5, 2024, statewide primary election. SB 28 is an unnecessary statewide bond with excessive and burdensome requirements to build more school buildings when California’s student population is dropping precipitously. If local school districts want to expand or modernize their school facilities, they are free to do so without asking taxpayers in other districts to pay for it by taking on a $15 billion debt.
