It would be synonymous to students just writing another check to the athletic department so they can recruit more players to spend a year at KU.

I don't believe we can trust them with the money. I also don't believe they are honest with the money they already have.

Are they keeping all of the sales tax?

and maybe I can keep my property tax to be used only on my property? The legislature will never allow this.

Seems like I remember when sales tax was 3%, and people could afford to send their kids to college without scholarships. But back then, we weren't using our tax dollars to give criminals "in state tuition".

As long as they are protected by Lawrence Fire Dept and partially by LPD, no way. They also place a huge impact on the LPD by the sheer numbers of students that they send out into the streets and by the LPD support for ball games and the spill over parking on city streets.

Oh heck NO......they receive grants, donations and good grief charge enough for someone to attend there. Maybe they need to look into their budget and re-evaluate they way they spend, maybe cut back some of those high salaries or Professor who some hardly do a days work. Use that sale tax for elementary education.
