Daniel Scarpinato, the governor’s spokesman, said Ducey is open to the timing of getting a measure on the ballot and other ideas for altering the tax, including expanding it, based on discussions with the education and business communities.

“Obviously, he wants to see Proposition 301 extended past the expiration,” Scarpinato told Arizona Capitol Times. “The governor didn’t work that hard for Proposition 123 for us to then face a fiscal cliff. That would not be good for K-12. That would not be good for the state.”
