Wisconsin (WKBT) - A growing number of Wisconsin school districts are turning to referendums to cover basic costs, and voters are approving them at record rates.
Voters approved 23 of 35 referendum on the April 1st ballot to raise money for operating costs. Another 15 of 21 referendum for construction and technology were approved. The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance says the approval rates were much higher than the state has seen in previous elections.
