Lots has been said and written about the great passing rates of school budgets. But if the tax cap bill now proposed makes it into law, two-thirds of those budgets would have failed.
What gets most people is that even if 59.9 percent say they agree with the budget their local school board develops. They can’t get it unless 60 percent say yes.
Turn that around. Only 40 percent have to say no for a budget to fail.
How can that be democracy?
If you haven’t already, call, write, fax your lawmaker. Oppose a damaging tax cap.
