Delaware: Rep Darryl Scott jams one in the backs of local taxpayers on the way to retirement #edude #netde

New bill would further school funding flexibility By Kelli Steele WDEL

School districts struggling to improve or maintain the quality of instruction would gain additional flexibility to raise funds under legislation in the House.

State Rep. Darryl Scott, who isn’t running for re-election, says House Bill 355 will be filed next week.

The measure would revise a provision in current law that requires a school district to hold a successful public referendum before a school board may approve any tax increases to fund non-capital budget expenditures. 

Under the bill, a school board could raise its local tax rate by up to 3 percent per year without a referendum. Larger increases and revenue enhancements for the purposes of funding capital projects, like new school construction, would remain subject to referendum in all cases.

Odds are, Senator Dave Sokola will backup his butt buddy Scott. I can assure this, any local board member calling for raising property taxes under this law if it makes to the governor’s desk will be ousted of the board! And you can be sure the school board elections will having voters coming out of the woodwork!  

Thank God this ASS is leaving public office!

  1. 3% a year increase. Every year. I liked his line about how doing it this way would make the districts really budget more tightly.
