Letters to the Editor

What are the legislators thinking? | Letters

Our legislators just don’t get it. We’ve had a funding crisis for the past several years, and continued cuts to education, and they want to propose another tax break.

You can’t keep putting holes in the revenue bucket! Does it make any sense to exempt school supplies from sales tax, when another sales tax cut will just decrease the money available to fund the schools where our kids use those supplies?

What are our legislators thinking?
