dc.description.abstractOur paper analyzes historical data for New York State on the percentage of school boardbudget proposals that are defeated each year and panel data that we collected for individualschool districts in the state. We find that changes in state aid have little impact on budgetvote success. Defeating a budget in one year increases the likelihood that the voters willdefeat a budget in the next year. Finally, districts have a larger probability of having theirbudget proposals defeated when their school board members have longer terms.en_US
