Letter from Library and School Board Members: ‘NO on SQ 766′

Filed by KOSU News in State Impact.

Here’s a letter urging a ‘no’ vote on State Question 766 signed by three library and two school board members in Norman.

Elaine Hobson, a Norman-area pathologist and Pioneer Library System board member collected the signatures. If the question passes — exempting certain “intangible” properties from taxation — schools, libraries and county services will face cuts, the five signatories write:

The estimate for lost revenue for the state is as high as $68 million. The Pioneer Library System estimates they would lose $400,000 and the Norman Public Schools estimate a loss of $600,000. Other county services such as our Health Department would also lose.
