Our Position

Oppose

Commentary

MASB opposes this legislation because it places unnecessary restrictions on when districts can ask for voters for addtional revenue.   Furthermore, by placing school millages on the November ballot, there is concern that these proposals will get little attention compared to other statewide and local elections.
