Fiscal impact

The fiscal estimate provided by the California Legislative Analyst's Office said:

Direct Costs of Paying Off the Bonds. For these types of bonds, the state typically would make principal and interest payments from the state's General Fund over a period of about 20 years. If all of the bonds authorized by this measure are sold at an interest rate of 7 percent, the cost would be about $3.3 billion to pay off both the principal ($1.9 billion) and interest (about $1.4 billion). The average payment for principal and interest would be about $165 million per year.

Path to the ballot

The California State Legislature voted to put Proposition 155 on the ballot in Assembly Bill 880 (Statutes of 1992, Chapter 12).
