The Legislature finds that the Regional Occupational Center of Kern is comprised of three school districts in Kern County and it provides vocational training in areas of social and economic need. The Legislature further finds that the entity is in need of school building facilities and the participating school districts have levied the permissive override tax authorized by Education Code Section 52317 to meet the cost of that construction. Inflation dictates that construction must begin at the earliest possible time to minimize the overall cost. The Legislature intends, therefore, in enacting this article to make available the necessary funds for immediate construction of the needed school facilities. The Legislature intends, however, that the funds shall be paid back in full with interest as provided by this article so that the taxpayers of this state shall not be required to pay for the support of the facilities.
