Tell State Senators to OPPOSE Making the Tax Cap Permanent!


Hi, I'm _____________ and I'm calling from ____________. I'm a voter in Senator _____________'s district.

I ask that you vote against S.1904, a bill that would make the tax cap permanent, unless it is amended to include key reforms that will help, not hurt, our children and our schools.

The current tax cap violates the principle of one-person, one-vote, because of the sixty percent supermajority needed to override the cap.

Reasonable adjustments to the tax cap for costs beyond a school district's control, like natural disasters and the cost of energy, must be made.

You cannot let this happen. Please protect the children and public schools in your district. Do not vote for S.1904, which would make the tax cap permanent without key reforms.
