Official Information |
Provides one-half of any
increase beyond the current amount allocated to public
education from state lottery revenues be allocated for
purchase of instructional materials. Fiscal Impact: In the
near term, tens of millions of dollars in annual lottery
revenues that go to public education would be earmarked
for instructional materials, with unknown earmarked amounts
in future years.
- A YES vote of this measure means:
- Fifty percent of any increase (above the 1997Ð 98
level) in California State Lottery revenues allocated to public
education would be earmarked to purchase instructional
materials for KÐ 12 public schools and community
- A NO vote of this measure means:
- There would be no change in the way lottery
revenues are allocated to public education.
- Summary of Arguments FOR Proposition 20:
- California is experiencing an alarming textbook shortage.
Proposition 20 would help end this shortage by creating a
continuous long-term supply of funds for textbooks, without
increasing taxes. It would require that the schools spend
half of any growth in lottery education revenues on
textbooks and instructional materials.
Full Text of Argument In Favor,
- Summary of Arguments AGAINST Proposition 20:
- Prop. 20 reduces local control.
You can now use lottery money for textbooks, safety
equipment, or computers. This proposition forces you to
spend half of new money for textbooks. If you already have
books, you could not use the money for other needs. That is
wrong. Vote No.
