Brooks Budget Plan Upheld

Monroe County won on all counts today in State Supreme Court, which threw out the legal challenge to the FAIR plan. From the Court decision:

Monroe County has no obligation to make the school districts whole for the reductions in sales tax revenue . . . 
There will be some very long faces at Monroe County Democratic headquarters tonight, which has desperately hoped to plunge the County into a fiscal crisis by invalidating the Brooks budget plan.  Remember the Democrats' Holy Grail:   leave Brooks no alternative but a massive property tax hike.
