Columbia Tribune: Vote NO on Proposition A

The Columbia Tribune warned voters of the dangers of Proposition A, but today they came out with a NO Vote on Proposition A endorsements:

The proposition is being promoted and funded by two big casino companies that already operate in the state. They want to limit future competition, and no current legislation, whether approved by voters or not, can ensure future legislators will expand general revenue school budgets to reflect increasing casino taxes. Even if that revenue goes into an education fund, as the initiative mandates, the General Assembly can and will reduce other potential education funding, meaning nobody can “guarantee” the proposal will increase education funding as the proponents allege.
