Michigan requires ballot question elections if a school district wants to issue new bonding or exceed the sinking fund levy limit or property tax cap set by law. Michigan law restricts how school districts can use excess levy limit election proceeds if approved. Also, Michigan has some of the toughest school bond laws in the nation requiring approval by the Michigan School Bond Qualification and Loan Program which is guaranteed by the Michigan Constitution. Michigan is one of a handful of states that uses the mill rate formula over a lengthy mathematical formula in expressing the property tax cap. The cap protected by the ''Michigan Property Tax Limitation Act of 1933''.

Local measure results near completion

TACOMA, Washington: Along with the other following states of, Oregon, Colorado, Wisconsin, Arizona, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan, Florida and Missouri have their local measure results posted for the recent vote on November 2. Though results will not be official until later in November, most races are far enough for there to be no real issue of contested measures. The overall trend was varied from state to state, Wisconsin for example had most of their school issues approved, where as Michigan had more of their school measures defeated. On the whole, most tax increases were not approved by local voters, though some exceptions were apparent. Notable measures which were followed included the Anne Arundel Mills Slot question which was approved, giving the development company the go ahead to start their build of a slots parlor at the mall. New York City Term Limits was also approved by voters, again reducing the term of city officials. Red light measures were defeated in both Houston Texas and Mukilteo City Washington.
