Statement on Maricopa County Superior Court Ruling on Prop 208


PHOENIX, ARIZONA—A major victory today for Arizona taxpayers, after a Maricopa County Superior Court judge permanently strikes down Prop 208 in its entirety.


The initiative misled Arizona voters by proposing a tax and spend hike that tried to get around the state's constitutional expenditure clause.


"Out-of-state special interests tried to deceive our voters," said Senate President Karen Fann (R-1). "We are thrilled that this job-killing tax hike won't go into effect. Now the state’s leaders can pursue important education funding while we craft next year’s budget."
