People saw Prop. 49 as Arnold’s attempt to lay the political groundwork for his run for office. The proposition also earmarked about half a billion dollars a year for before and after-school care. Prop. 49 contained a provision that assured it wouldn’t take effect in times of a budget crisis. But now that revenues in California are up, the money is ready to flow. And that’s good news for San Diego’s six-to-six program, which recently cut services due to the city’s financial problems.
