Sales Tax for Education

teacher

SQ 779 is a constitutional amendment that would raise the state sales and use tax by 1%. 60% of the total revenue would go to increasing the salary of every public school teacher by at least $5,000. The remaining funds would divide between public schools (9.5%), higher education (19.25%), career and technology education (3.25%), and early childhood education (8%). Voting for or against this state sales tax increase will take place in November. Vote and make your decision heard!
