This measure sought to increase the current levy by a rate of $1.46 per $1,000 of assessed property value for a period of twenty years in order to further pay for disability services in the school district.[2] School officials noted that there had not been an increase in the disabilities levy since 1974 and see this as just a way to keep providing the services already offered by the schools.[3]

The question on the ballot:

Shall the 1.9417 mills limitation ($1.9417 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation) on the annual property tax previously approved by the electors of Saginaw Intermediate School District, Michigan, for the education of students with a disability be increased by 1.4644 mills ($1.4644 on each $1,000 of taxable valuation), for a period of 20 years, 2011 to 2030, inclusive; the estimate of the revenue the intermediate school district will collect if the millage is approved and levied in 2011 is approximately $7,247,800 from local property taxes authorized herein?[4]
