Web Exclusive News! California School Facilities, Public Buildings In Need of Repairs
Spending on infrastructure in California has dropped from nearly 20% of general fund revenues in the early 1960s to less than 3% today, despite the state's tremendous population growth.

The documents are available at www.calrac.org/infra.agenda.html.
