AB 1372, as introduced, Holden. School facilities: funding.
Existing law, the Leroy F.

Existing law, the Field Act, generally requires the Department of General Services to supervise the design and construction of, the reconstruction or alteration of, or the addition to, a school building to ensure, among other things, that plans and specifications comply with adopted rules and regulations and building standards.
This bill would state the intent of the Legislature to enact legislation to adopt a long-term funding solution to ensure California meets its obligation to provide adequate funding to school districts for facility construction and maintenance.
