Explanation SB394: Requires each County Commission to increase property taxes for schools by an additional 10 cents for each $100 of assessed valuation. Currently it is 75 cents on each $100 of assessed valuation for schools. It also allows the property tax in a county to go above the property tax cap. Nevada Schools rank 49th in the nation. California ranks 15th. More money will not help the schools until there is a fundamental change in the curriculum and accountability of teachers, principles, superintendents and students. We need to get rid of all remnants of the renamed Common Core Curriculum, return systematic intensive phonics, English grammar and literature, regular useful math, cursive hand writing, and traditional American History. Per pupil spending in Nevada was raised for this school year to $12,406. No more money for the failing government schools!
According to the Institute for Policy Innovation in the United States, the total U.S. tax burden including federal, state, local taxes and hidden taxes is equal to 56 percent of annual personal consumption spending. 56% is more than a person spends on housing, food, health care, transportation, education and recreation. How can people possibly take care of themselves and our families when government takes 56% of our income?
MESSAGE:Vote NO on SB394 a property tax increase for the schools. We don’t want any more money going to the failed public schools. Nevada schools ranks 49th in the nation. The schools need fundamental change in curriculum and accountability for teachers, principals and superintendents. With taxes and inflation already so high, we can’t afford more taxes. (Or better yet write your own message.)
