SacBee Analyzes The Special Interest Deals Behind The Budget Propositions

From The Sacramento Bee:

For the teachers union, the list of ballot measures includes a separate measure to ensure repayment of deep cuts to schools and protections for top-priority programs. The California Teachers Association has contributed $7 million to the passage of Propositions 1A and 1B. [...]

Lawmakers also linked Proposition 1A to Proposition 1B, which will take effect only if the first measure also passes.

Proposition 1B, which would require paying an additional $9.3 billion to schools in the future to compensate for current budget cuts, was designed to keep the California Teachers Association from bankrolling a campaign against 1A.
