Proposition 122 passed by California's voters in 1990, created the Earthquake Safety and Public Buildings Rehabilitation Fund of 1990, supported by a $300 million general obligation bond program for the seismic retrofit of state and local government buildings. As a part of the program, Proposition 122 authorizes the California Seismic Safety Commission (CSSC). to use up to 1% of the proceeds of the bonds, or approximately $3 million, to carry out a range of activities that will capitalize on the seismic retrofit experience in the private sector to improve seismic retrofit practices for government buildings. The purpose of California's Proposition 122 research and development program is to develop state-of-the-practice recommendations to address current needs for seismic retrofit provisions and seismic risk decision tools. It is focused specifically on vulnerable concrete structures consistent with the types of concrete buildings that make up a significant portion of California's state and local government inventories.
