    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, October 23, 2008, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on bond oversight. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    This is the second of two planned hearings as part of the Commission’s review of oversight mechanisms for state bond expenditures. The Commission’s interest stems from the state’s sizeable bond package enacted in November 2006, which adds $43 billion in bonding capacity for infrastructure investment, and its concerns about whether adequate mechanisms exist to ensure this money is spent efficiently and effectively. This hearing will explore existing state oversight mechanisms for transportation and resources bonds as well as local bond oversight committees for education facility bonds. The Commission will hear from additional witnesses who will provide recommendations for improving bond oversight in California. A complete agenda is on the reverse.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments. A business meeting will follow the hearing.
