Two college referendum proposals turned down by voters (September 28, 1976): By a nearly 2 to 1 margin, voters in the district defeated two propositions meant to increase funds for classroom construction and vocational-technical equipment among other things. The reasons for the bond issue and tax increases were based on inflation and a 16% drop in funding from the state, according to then Board of Trustees chairman Thomas Donnell from Mattoon.
