Proposition 1b



  • Requires supplemental payments to local school districts and community colleges to address recent budget cuts.

  • Annual payments begin in 2011–12.

  • Payments are funded from the state’s Budget Stabilization Fund until the total amount has been paid.

  • Payments to local school districts will be allocated in proportion to average daily attendance and may be used for classroom instruction, textbooks and other local educational programs.

  • Summary of Legislative Analyst’s Estimate of Net State and Local Government Fiscal Impact:

  • Fiscal impact would depend on how current constitutional provisions would otherwise be interpreted.

  • Potential state savings of up to several billion dollars in 2009–10 and 2010–11.

  • Potential state costs of billions of dollars annually thereafter.

Sounds good right? Other than the fact that it doesn't actually happen until 2011? But wait. And this part isn't even on the Secretary of States website, but according to my favorite conservative radio "shock jocks" John Kobalt and Ken Champaeu and their crayola comments (kidding!), Prob 1b can not pass if Prop 1a doesn't pass!

So what the are telling you is, you wanna give money to the schools? You want us to fund education? Then do what we tell you and no body gets hurt. Or as Arnold said in a press conference today, No body burns! As he threatened to fire fireman and put California in danger if Prop 1a didn't pass.

Moving to Las Vegs is looking better and better each day.
