    That's only 18 million a year short of projections. Easily made up by raising ticket prices a bit.

    In all honesty that is very true. Raising ticket prices by $3 per ticket would make up the difference. I think that would be a pretty reasonable amount, Although I think it should be an additional ticket tax, not a price increase because a price increase alone would have to be close to $6 per ticket due to revenue sharing.

    EDIT: That being said, I don't think the bill allows them to levy additional taxes against tickets. So while this would work financially, it is likely not viable legally.

    More than likely the $18m will be absorbed, as will whatever the shortfall is next year. If it continues a negative trend, the state will have to look to levy additional taxes somewhere on a larger scale than just tickets to pay for it.
