If this measure passes, what prevents the legislature from reducing the amount they would have funded K12 education?
This ballot measure requires at least 35% of the additional revenue to be directed to education, including pre-school through 12th grade education, vocational education and higher education. As in every legislative session, the legislature has the ability to cut education in order to fund other areas of the state budget. However, the negative factor provides a mechanism for tracking those cuts and our advocates will be at the Capitol highlighting the shell game if that becomes an issue.
