This could have been a huge deal had it passed. Massachusetts voted on a ballot measure to eliminate its state income tax. Massachusetts gets about 40% of its revenue from the income tax, so obviously this would have been a shock to state government.
The Boston Globe reports that the measure has failed.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
