Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

This text is quoted verbatim from the original source. Any inconsistencies are attributed to the original source.

Shall the limitation on the annual property tax previously approved by the electors of Jackson County Intermediate School District, Michigan, for the education of students with a disability be increased by 1.55 mills ($1.55 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation), for a period of 6 years, 2012 to 2017, inclusive (0.9 mill of the above is a renewal of millage which expires with the 2012 tax levy and 0.65 mill is a millage increase, in part to restore previous Headlee reductions); the estimate of the increased revenue the intermediate school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2012 is approximately $2,693,502 from local property taxes authorized herein?[6]
