Last Minute Results Show Another Governator Victory
Not only was Super Tuesday the the day for California residents to vote in the presidential primaries, it was also the time for voters to weigh in on Governor Schwarzenegger's new financial proposals....
Three big pieces of legislation were on Tuesday's ballot. The governor's only losing battle was for Proposition 56. Official results for Prosition 55, the Kindergarten-University Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2004, came in late Wednesday, and showed that 55 passed by an extremely narrow margin (just 50.6 percent). Schools will benefit locally in Santa Clarita with what is expected to be at least $180 million fed into renovations for existing schools as well as construction funding for new schools.
Propositions 57 and 58, the partner legislative pieces giving the green light on the governor's road to California's financial recovery (and his politcal success), passed. The legislature will now work within the means of Governor Schwarzenegger's proposed $14 million bond, as the state stops borrowing money and "cuts up its credit cards."
