Arizona Sales Tax Fails to Make the Ballot

One of the most frequent conversation topics on ACCE's Government Relations Division Policy Forum conference calls is transportation funding.  It seems that everyone is looking for money to pay for road expansion or commuter rail.

Citizens in Arizona lost a chance this November to vote whether or not to fund transportation projects in the state through a 1 percent sales tax increase.

Supporters of the Transportation and Infrastructure Moving Arizona's Economy (TIME) measure collected well over the requisite 153,000 signatures to put the measure on the ballot.  However, many signatures were invalided by the Maricopa County Superior Court because of incorrect addresses, dates and other issues.  The Arizona Supreme Court upheld the decision and the tax proposal will not be on the ballot in November.
