Enterprise School Tax Vote Reaction

Some Alabama school superintendents are now wondering how many state dollars will be cut from their budgets.

The Enterprise City School District is in much better shape than most. The system is made of 5,400 students and has 650 employees.

Last Spring, residents overwhelmingly re-approved a sales tax earmarked for schools. But, Superintendent Dr. Jim Reese says 65-percent of his budget comes from the state.

With voters rejecting Amendment One, his system will lose more than $1.5 million.

Dr. Reese says his district has enough reserves to avoid any budget cutting this school year. But, he's not so sure what will happen after that.
