Resolution Regarding Support of Proposition 47

Resolution Regarding Support of Proposition 47,

The Kindergarten-University Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2002

Adopted October 7, 2002

Whereas:      Public educational institutions in California, Elementary schools through to Universities, are in desperate need of funds for building more classrooms, retrofitting buildings, improving technological infrastructure, and better equipping libraries; and

Whereas:      The California State University system alone is expected to grow to a half million students enrolled as early as 2010. This growth pattern is the equivalent of adding a college the size of CSU Hayward, approximately 13,000 people each year to the current CSU system; and      

Whereas:      Many California State University campuses are already suffering from the effects of impaction and will be unable to fulfill their mission to provide access to higher education to the students of California; and

Whereas:      Proposition 47 is a bond measure that would allow the State of California to sell bonds with the intent of procuring money for badly needed renovations to public education facilities; and

Whereas:      The $330 million provided annually to the California State University between 2002 and 2004 would give our institutions a running start into the future, therefore be it

Resolved:      The Associated Students of Humboldt State University support Proposition 47, the Kindergarten-University Public Education Facilities Bond Act of 2002, and further more be it,

Resolved:      This resolution shall be sent to but not limited to President Richmond, the LumberJack, and CSSA
