A no-tax increase budget?

Please spare me the elation over passing a state budget on time, and passing a budget that does not increase taxes.

Sorry guys, but are you paying attention at the local level? Have you seen a place where school taxes aren't going up?

Any place?

So taxes ARE going up, and you know what's not coming in -- revenue from a tax on gas drilling. 

Isn't that special?
