ABSTRACT
Officials from Renton School District in Washington will try to get voter approval on a 150 million dollar general obligation bond measure to pay for the final phase of a 363 million dollar, 20-year capital plan. The school district is one of 19 across the state to have a referendum on today's ballot, for a total of 593 million dollars par value of bonds. Revenue earned from the bond would be used for building new schools, renovate existing ones, or modernize facilities, according to Jon Gores, a vice president at Seattle-Northwest Securities, which serves as financial adviser to many of the districts.
