The California Taxpayers Association (CalTax) announced that it has endorsed the Kindergarten Through Community College Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2016.
CalTax is the state’s largest and oldest organization representing taxpayers. Established as a nonpartisan, non-profit research and advocacy association, CalTax has a dual mission to guard against unnecessary taxation and to promote government efficiency.
President Teresa Casazza announced that the CalTax Board of Directors has voted to take the following positions on statewide measures expected to appear on the November ballot:
Statewide Bond to Fund School Facilities – SUPPORT.
CalTax supports Initiative 15-0005, which provides for the issuance of $9 billion in general obligation bonds to fund improvements and construction of school facilities at K-12 schools and community colleges. Education is a matter of statewide concern, and California must prepare its students to compete in a global economy. This measure will ensure that California counties with growing student populations will have adequate classrooms. This bond meets CalTax’s criteria for using a general obligation bond to finance capital projects.
