District and Goldwater Institute in interim deal

A suburban Phoenix school district has agreed to stop spending money from a special bond while a judge reviews a complaint from the Goldwater Institute that it is violating voter intent.

The Cave Creek Unified School District built two elementary schools with some of the $41 million school construction bond program approved by voters in 2000. But the district had $13 million left over and wants to spend it on other projects.

The Goldwater Institute believes that violates a contract the district has with voters who approved the bond.

The Arizona Legislature approved a law last year aimed at the Cave Creek district allowing some districts to spend bond money on projects voters didn’t approve.

Goldwater argues the law is unconstitutional because it doesn’t apply to all citizens.
