On Thursday, January 16, the Arizona Court of Appeals released its opinion concerning Proposition 417. The unanimous decision reversed the ruling of Arizona’s tax court, stating that it “find[s] the Prop 417 to be valid.” The excise tax was approved by Pinal County voters in November 2017, to fund the county-wide Regional Transportation Plan, but was immediately contested by the Goldwater Institute.
“I am very pleased with the outcome,” stated County Manager Louis Andersen in a press release issued by Pinal County. “The county is ready to start building these critical infrastructure/road projects and have been for some time now. This is a great way to start the new year.”
