ABSTRACT
The article reports on the school construction financing plan of Governor Janet Napolitano in Tucson, Arizona. George Cunningham, the governor's budget director, has likened the school construction plan to a home mortgage, saying it will help build more schools and keep up with population growth. The governor's plan seeks to bring in $400 million in new money for highway construction by refinancing bonds to 30 years instead of their current 20-year term.
