With the current state laws around property tax freezes…school districts must get permission to exceed those limits by putting referendums (referenda?) on their local ballots.

And they are some of the taxing authorities that love these low turnout odd year elections…because they can rouse supporters to vote…hopefully…and get the referendum passed. So they are floating a mess of these things today and keeping their fingers crossed.

So how many and how much? Well 49 school districts…59 referenda…$1.2 Billion!!

Is it really appropriate that less than a third of the voters will get to spend $1.2 billion??? yikes!!!
