Bond oversight legislation authored by Senator Scott Wilk, R-Antelope Valley, has sailed through the Assembly and is headed to Gov. Jerry Brown. Senate Bill 341 would improve public oversight of school facility bonds by allowing Bond Oversight Committee Members to serve up to 12 years. Current law caps the term at six years. "The Assembly's action is great news for transparency and accountability in the school facility bond process," said Wilk. "In the last election there were 180 school bond measures on local ballots in California. That translates to billions of dollars tacked onto local property tax bills had they all passed. Having qualified and experienced experts on school facility bond oversight committees will ensure projects come in on time and on budget — which is good for the taxpayers." Gov. Brown has 30 days to take action on the bill.
