ABSTRACT
Voters approved 980 million dollar in general obligation bonds for the Los Angeles Community College District of Los Angeles, California in an election on May 20, 2003. The measure needed 55 percent of the vote to win, under a statewide law allowing districts to approve government obligations by that margin in statewide general and primary elections and already-scheduled local elections. The ballot also included runoff elections for two City Council seats, one board of education seat, and one college trustee position. Opponents questioned whether the request came too soon after a 1.2 billion dollar facilities bond measure passed by voters in 2001, saying all of that debt had not yet been issued and that they wanted to be sure that the earlier revenues from bond were well spent.
