Bride of Slots for Tots

Could we see a sequel to the 2009 attempt by House Democrats to fake the public out by attaching money for school buildings to slots at tracks legislation?
A legislative budget subcommittee on education met Thursday to ask state education officials how to address Kentucky’s 165 schools classified as Category 4 or Category 5, which have gone at least 30 years without a major renovation. A few date back to the 1920s and have serious structural flaws.
I'm not only for keeping these buildings built in the 1920s, I'm for bringing back whatever they did in them when they were first built. After all, which is better, old buildings with student who could read in them, or new buildings with functional illiterates?
