Not to exceed six million dollars ($6,000,000) of the amount of the proceeds of bonds issued under the State School Building Aid and Earthquake Reconstruction and Replacement Bond Law of 1974 shall be allocated by the State Allocation Board to the Regional Occupational Center of Kern for the construction and equipping of a new regional occupational center to be located in Kern County. The funds shall be available for allocation to the entity for a period of not more than four years from the effective date of this article and during such period the entity shall apply for the funds as are necessary to accomplish the purposes of this article. Funds shall be expended after the four-year period with respect to allocations made during the four-year period.

Only Sections 16000, 16001, 16003, 16005, and 16006, and Sections 16009, 16018, 16019, 16021, 16089, 16093, 16094, 16097, and 16099 of Article 1 (commencing with Section 16000) of this chapter shall be applicable to the administration of this article unless the context of this article as determined by the State Allocation Board requires otherwise.

The Legislature finds that the Regional Occupational Center of Kern is comprised of three school districts in Kern County and it provides vocational training in areas of social and economic need. The Legislature further finds that the entity is in need of school building facilities and the participating school districts have levied the permissive override tax authorized by Education Code Section 52317 to meet the cost of that construction. Inflation dictates that construction must begin at the earliest possible time to minimize the overall cost. The Legislature intends, therefore, in enacting this article to make available the necessary funds for immediate construction of the needed school facilities. The Legislature intends, however, that the funds shall be paid back in full with interest as provided by this article so that the taxpayers of this state shall not be required to pay for the support of the facilities.

16282.
  

Any amounts allocated and disbursed to the Regional Occupational Center of Kern pursuant to this article shall be fully repaid with interest by the entity to the state in 20 equal annual payments commencing with the second fiscal year after the date of disbursement to the entity. Interest shall be paid at a rate determined by the State Allocation Board. Amounts allocated pursuant to this article shall be repaid by the entity from the proceeds of the tax levied by the participating school districts pursuant to Section 52317 and the payments shall be transferred by the County Auditor of Kern County to the State Treasury for the credit of the State School Building Aid Fund in accordance with established regulations and procedures.

(Repealed and added by Stats. 1996, Ch. 277, Sec. 2. Effective January 1, 1997. Operative January 1, 1998.)

16283.
  

If at the time of considering the entity’s application the State Allocation Board determines that the revenue to be received from the tax permitted by Section 52317 will be insufficient to pay the principal and interest of the loan in 20 equal annual payments, the board shall approve the application and allocate the funds therefor only upon condition that an election be called by the governing board of the entity and that two-thirds of the qualified electors of the entity voting on a proposition therefor, authorize the governing board to accept, expend and repay as provided in this article the allocation or apportionment. The election shall be called, held, and conducted in the same manner as are elections to authorize the issuance of school district bonds, except that the ballot shall contain substantially the following words:

“Shall the Governing Board of the Regional Occupational Center of Kern, for the purpose of providing permanent facilities for a regional occupational center, be authorized to accept, expend, and repay an apportionment from the State of California under and subject to the provisions of Article 7.5 (commencing with Section 16280) of Chapter 8, Part 10, Division 1, Title 1 of the Education Code, in an amount not to exceed $____. Yes__ No__”
