That didn't last long. Following up on my post from yesterday, it's clear that the Arizona legislature isn't going to vote to place a sales tax increase on the ballot anytime soon. From the Arizona Republic:
Once again, Gov. Jan Brewer's hopes for a legislative vote to put a sales-tax question before voters have been dashed.
A day after the governor issued a call for a special session on a temporary sales-tax hike, legislative leaders Wednesday said that they've run out of time. More importantly, there didn't appear to be the votes, although accounts vary depending on who is talking. That means today's special session will focus only on enacting $200 million in cuts to the budget, with its $1.6 billion deficit.
