This measure authorizes the Lompoc Unified School District to issue and sell bonds of up to $79 million in order to update and repair facilities throughout the district.

The tax increase would change each year depending on the interest rate and the original amount needed to be paid. No money from the bond is authorized for teacher or administrator salaries.
