Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Vail Measure: Shall the Governing Board of Vail Unified School District No. 20 of Pima County, Arizona, adopt a Maintenance and Operation Budget which includes an amount that exceeds the revenue control limit specified by statute by ten percent (10%) for fiscal year 2012-2013 and for six (6) subsequent years as described below? The 2012-2013 budget override authority represents a replacement of an existing ten (10%) budget override authority, which phased down by one-third for fiscal year 2011-2012 and is scheduled to phase down by an additional one-third for fiscal year 2012-2013 if the voters do not approve the new ten (10%) budget override authority.

Sunnyside Measure: Shall the Governing Board of Sunnyside Unified School District No. 12 of Pima County, Arizona, (the “School District”) adopt Maintenance and Operations Fund Budgets which allow the school district to exceed the applicable revenue control limit specified by law in the amount of not more than ten percent (10%) per fiscal year for fiscal year 2012-2013 and the next subsequent six (6) fiscal years thereafter?[3][4]
