Summary: Parcel taxes are one of the only means school districts have to supplement budgets and meet the needs of local students. Last year, however, only 20% of parcel taxes statewide were approved — the excessively high ⅔ threshold currently in place to pass means a minority of voters consistently blocks vital education funding. SCA5 would lower the threshold for parcel tax approval to 55%. This bill did not receive a full vote in the Senate.
