Write Your Legislator Now
Our schools are badly in need of repairs, and California voted YES to fund these repairs in 2016. Governor Brown and the obscure State School Building Finance Committee, under his control, have refused to issue bonds that would fund these critically needed repairs.
Tell your legislator to take action for our students. Our schools can’t wait for these essential repairs and upgrades. Repair our schools now!
Fill out this form to allow Repair Our Schools Now to send your State Senator, Assemblymember, Governor and Lt. Governor the below message on your behalf.
WE VOTED YES TO REPAIR SCHOOLS
Voters approved the sale of bonds to repair, upgrade, and improve schools when we passed Proposition 51 in 2016. Governor Brown is delaying the sale of bonds for necessary school repairs.
OUR SCHOOLS NEED REPAIRS NOW
Outdated schools place students in unsafe and unhealthy learning environments where they can’t do their best. There is a $3.2 billion backlog of projects waiting for this funding that are necessary for school safety. Without bond funding, schools will be forced to either delay and downsize critical projects, or divert funds away from educational programming.
WE SAVE MONEY BY ACTING NOW
Rising inflation rates and construction costs mean that delaying the sale of bonds will cost Californians more in the future. If current trends continue, California taxpayers will pay nearly $1 billion more in interest costs for $1 billion less value under the Governor’s current proposal.
