State Bond Proposal Dies

Sponsored by:

Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger´s office says negotiations for placing a public works bond on the June ballot have failed.

The state Assembly was called back into session Wednesday evening to consider placing at least part of a massive public works bond proposal on the June ballot. The session was called shortly after the governor and leaders from both parties met for about an hour in a last-minute round of negotiations. The Senate also convened last night.

If such a deal had been approved by both houses of the Legislature, it would have represented a partial victory for Schwarzenegger. In January he proposed a ten-year, 222 (b) billion-dollar public works spending plan that relied on borrowing 68 (b) billion dollars. Administration officials say they will continue to push for other public works bonds on the November ballot.
