Even before any hammer is nailed on new campus projects, the Solano Community College Measure Q bond is generating considerable interest among labor organizations, students and faculty.

Solano Community College board members Wednesday got some nuts and bolts on how the $348 million bond funds might be spent, and also heard wide-ranging concerns about possible impacts to math and science programs, and use of Project Labor Agreements.

Approved by voters in November, Measure Q is designed to modernize the Fairfield, Vallejo, Vacaville campuses, and upgrade nursing, firefighter and biotechnology programs, among other items.

A study session drew dozens to the Fairfield campus, increasing an hour-long study session to nearly double lengthdue to the number of speakers in the public comment forum.

The college's possible use of Project Labor Agreements drew the most speakers as labor organizations, union groups and construction trade associations outlined what they perceive as the pros and cons of such accords.
