Possible Budget Cuts

Possible Budget Cuts
Proposition 100

Soon after taking office in 2009, Governor Brewer proposed a temporary sales tax increase to help address the state's budget deficit. The Arizona Legislature recently agreed with the proposal and will seek the voters' input about the temporary tax through a special election on May 18th.
This one cent sales tax will not solve the state budget deficit but is a critical part of the solution. If it does not pass, K-12 education will face a 20% reduction in state funding. Click here to read more facts about Proposition 100.
