Funding for three county junior colleges undecided 

Results for a parcel tax for the San Mateo County Community College District was too close to call Tuesday.

Measure G is a $34 parcel tax that would benefit community colleges the College of San Mateo, Cañada College and Skyline College.

Supporters of the tax say the measure will help keep job-training programs in the nursing, science, technology, police and fire fields intact.

Opponents say $34 is another unnecessary tax at a time when people are being laid off and watching every penny.
If approved, the tax will take effect July 1 and last through June 30, 2014.
