The article reports that voters will decide on extending a property tax for five years to finance almost half of Albuquerque Municipal School District No. 12's five-year capital improvement program. The tax, if approved, would generate $218.6 million from 2005 through 2009. The district will ask voters in 2006 and 2009 to approve bond packages of between $70 million and $75 million each. Voters will also be asked to extend another property tax in 2007 to raise an additional $90 million. The current property tax levy is set to expire unless voters approve its extension.
