The measure sought to exceed state-set revenue limits by $600,000 per year for 5 years, for a total of $3,000,000. The additional funds would have been used to maintain the current levels of operation. The measure was defeated.


Defeated, with 937 "no" votes and 590 "yes" votes.[1][2]

12-13 = $1,002
13-14 = $974
