California District Renovation "Frenzy" Supported by Voter-Approved Bonds

The San Jose Mercury News (3/19, 535K) reports, "The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act may be winding down, but there's another economic stimulus taking place in and around San Mateo, where two school districts are spending hundreds of millions of dollars overhauling their facilities." The Mercury News adds, "The San Mateo Union High School District and San Mateo-Foster City elementary district are engaged in a building and renovation frenzy fueled by voter-approved bonds." District officials cited noted that "the bonds were needed not because of state budget cuts but because of aging facilities, many of which were built more than 50 years ago."
