Proposition Forum Educates Voters

Message

Casey Dominguez, Ph.D., organized the ballot proposition review with Pi Sigma Alpha, the USD Political Science honor society. With both students and faculty in attendance, four political science professors weighed the pros and cons of each of the 12 propositions that could amend state law.

The measure proposes a bond issue of $9.95 billion to create a high speed train service from San Francisco to Los Angeles.

Bonds, a common tool of public financing, allow governments to borrow money from investors. (Full Story on Inside USD)
