Reflecting the off-year election and the public's growing resentment of heavy debt burdens, only $6.04 billion of bond proposals will be on state and local ballots tomorrow -- the lowest amount since 1985.

This year's bond slate, which includes 215 separate issues, is roughly half the $11.81 billion that was on last year's Election Day ballot, the third-highest in the post-World War II period. The election data are based on information available to The Bond Buyer as of last Thursday.
