You may agree or disagree with Gov. Brown's stance. His argument is basically that the state already has enough debt on its books. However, it is noteworthy that the state at one time not only supported K-14 facility construction but also construction at UC and CSU. Support for UC and CSU construction has largely dried up. If the bond were to be placed on the ballot (an expensive signature-gathering campaign would be required) and be passed by voters, it would create a situation in which the K-14 world (the Prop 98 world) gets capital project support from the state but not the rest of public education. Given the general popularity of education in public opinion polls in California, it is likely that such a bond, if put on the ballot, would pass.
