Dont get too excited, aren't casino revenues down?

That's 1% of the annual revenue the district lost from GenOn's closing and the state tax cuts to local industry. If you think making up 1% of the budget deficit is enough to offset the losses, then we don't need another levy. Otherwise, accept that there will be significant cuts to what the district can offer its kids (class size, programs, etc.)
