Missouri Education Funding

That's according to a recent state audit of gambling money for education in the state. Missouri auditor Susan Montee says a voter approved law in 2008 changed a loss-limit at casinos and raised taxes on the gaming companies. That money was supposed to go to schools in Missouri but Montee says lawmakers have removed one of the provisions within the law muddying the financial picture. A spokeswoman for the state senate says the changes were made to ensure school aid flowed correctly and consistently to the schools.
