(KGTV) -- California's Proposition 13 appeared to be heading towards a defeat, according to overnight results from Super Tuesday voting.

With at least 80 percent of precincts reporting, 56 percent of voters struck the prop down, while 44 percent of voters supported the school bond plan, according to numbers provided by the Secretary of State's office.

Proposition 13 would authorize $15 billion in bonds to be used for state educational facilities, including preschools, K-12 schools, and universities and community colleges.

Those in support of the proposition argue it's necessary for modernizing schools and colleges, instead of new construction. Those against Prop 13 say it will increase local property taxes and add to California's debt.
