Shall the Board of Trustees of Emmett Independent School District No. 221, Gem and Boise Counties, Idaho, be authorized and empowered to levy a supplemental levy, as permitted by law in Section 33-802(3), Idaho Code One Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($1,500,000), each year for two years for a total of Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000) for the purpose of paying all lawful expenses of maintaining and operating the schools of the District for the fiscal years beginning July 1, 2013 and ending June 30, 2015?

IN FAVOR OF authorizing the supplemental levy of $1,500,000 each year for two years

AGAINST authorizing the supplemental levy of $1,500,000 each year for two years[1][2]
