AB 48 (O’Donnell) Approved by the California State Assembly
The bond bill, AB 48 (O’Donnell), was approved by the California State Assembly at the end of last week on a vote of 69-1. As you will recall a bond bill requires a two-thirds vote for passage in both the Assembly and the Senate. The amount approved was $13 billion. A number of changes to the School Facility Program (SFP) sought by CASH are incorporated in the bond bill language. We will keep the Board informed as AB 48 continues its journey through the Senate.
