Proposition 205

Youthful and Adult Offender Local Facilities Bond Act of 1996

Bond Act

Summary: This act provides for a bond issue of seven hundred million dollars ($700,000,000) to provide funds for the construction, renovation, remodeling, and replacement of local juvenile and adult correctional facilities.

Fiscal Impact: General Fund costs of $1.25 billion to repay principal and interest, with annual payments averaging $50 million for 25 years. Unknown costs, potentially millions of dollars annually, to counties to operate new facilities.

A YES vote on this measure means: The state would be able to issue $700 million in general obligation bonds to finance local facilities for juvenile and adult offenders.

A NO vote on this measure means: The state would not be able to issue bonds for that purpose.

The State Ballot Pamphlet, published by the Secretary of State, features the text, fiscal analysis, and pro/con arguments.
