Wisconsin has a revenue cap that limits the amount of property tax revenue school districts can bring in. If any school district wants to exceed revenue limits, they are required to have a ballot measure. Wisconsin also requires ballot measures for any school bonding that exceeds $1 million dollars. However, Wisconsin has generous exemptions for school districts required to hold bond elections. School districts are exempt from voter approval to issue new bonding if a district is ordered by a state or federal court to remove hazardous substances or to be in compliance with fire standards. Also, school districts are exempt from bond elections if they are purchasing or detaching property from a former consolidated school district.

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.

Wisconsin has a revenue cap that limits the amount of property tax revenue school districts can bring in. If any school district wants to exceed revenue limits, they are required to have a ballot measure. Wisconsin also requires ballot measures for any school bonding that exceeds $1 million dollars. However, Wisconsin has generous exemptions for school districts required to hold bond elections. School districts are exempt from voter approval to issue new bonding if a district is ordered by a state or federal court to remove hazardous substances or to be in compliance with fire standards. Also, school districts are exempt from bond elections if they are purchasing or detaching property from a former consolidated school district.
