Higher Education Facilities Bond Act Of 2020

California lawmakers are considering whether to place an $8 billion general obligation bond measure on the March 2020 ballot. If approved by voters, the measure would let the University of California and the California State University system improve the seismic safety of their buildings and expand their physical capacity to serve thousands more California students.

Senate Bill 14, The Higher Education Facilities Bond Act of 2020, was authored by State Senators Steve Glazer and Ben Allen and Assembly members Jesse Gabriel and Jose Medina to help UC and CSU address major backlogs in deferred maintenance and accommodate greater student enrollment.
