7. It doesn't come out of the general fund
it's bonded, voted on by the electorate and the funds are hypothecated in line with a the budget submitted to the state auditor and approved by the voters. In short, this contract has to be awarded to someone, by law. Whether it should be awarded this particular firm is open to debate, your argument about comparing with the state general fund is not.

If you don't understand CA law and the bond process, then you have no idea what you're talking about.
