Proposed Constitutional Amendment for Allocation of Gaming Proceeds

February 7, 2018

State House democratic leaders and the Maryland State Education Association say more money is needed to meet the needs of the state’s public school system.

They’re asking the General Assembly to support a constitutional amendment that would require all of the state’s proceeds from gambling to go to funding public education.

    Should go to public safety. All the education money is wasted on brain washing the kids, turning them into liberal snowflakes. It’s sad, so use the money to protect us from the drug addicts, welfare abusers, thugs and illegal aliens that are welcomed and supported by the Democrat Peoples Republic of Maryland.

        You have no idea how the seizure laws work. They don’t get to keep all that money. Try again. Now as far as the tank, put it like this; its like a life jacket on a boat. You hardly ever need it but when you do need it, you are glad you have it.

        Sounds like that tank might have busted through your front door! No wonder you dislike the po po!!! Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. Now go and make me a sandwich!

    How will that boost the system up to meet or exceed minimal standards since some districts do not now.

    This was their reason that was shoved down our throats when the sold the State Lottery system to Maryland citizens. The SAME argument. I could support a percentage (25-30%) but not the whole amount going to just education. Study after study has shown that there is no direct correlation between spending a student success. Besides, we are already seeing corruption in several schools systems so that graduation numbers, success rates are higher (changing grades). What “formula” could they possibly develop that would be fair to ALL counties in Maryland? They can’t. More successful schools, spending less per student will be punished with a smaller cut.

    One more time, this is how it works. When gambling was sold to the sheeple, they were told the money would be for education. What they conveniently left out was they would cut the education fund by the amount gambling brought in. So they are not getting any “extra” money, it is just back filling the budget and that money is being somewhere else to support some failed liberal entitlement. But keep voting Democrat, look how great our state is because of it. People will continue to vote for the same clowns and expect better results. Throw these bums out and send a message.
