The Legislative Assembly finds that:

(1) The construction and maintenance of public school facilities accomplish the purpose of creating jobs and furthering economic development in Oregon by, among other advantages:

(a) Furnishing an important element of the public school system that provides the basic framework for continuing and expanding economic activity in the state;

(b) Alleviating the congestion and crowding associated with, and reducing the burdens of expansion and maintenance of, existing public school facilities, as well as reducing energy consumption; and

(c) Creating employment opportunities through the funding of projects for the development and construction of public school facilities.

(2) Based on the legislative findings described in this section, the use of a portion of the net proceeds from the operation of the state lottery funds under section 4 (3), Article XV of the Oregon Constitution and ORS 461.510 (State Lottery Fund) creates jobs and furthers economic development.
