Buttrick: Is the Arizona Constitution to be taken seriously or for granted?

(Disclosure: Rose Law Group represents Ann Siner of My Sister’s Closet and Judge John Buttrick in their litigation efforts against 208.)

By John Buttrick | Paradise Valley Independent, Arizona Capitol Times

As an attorney and retired judge I have always considered the Arizona Constitution to be the highest law of the state, not a set of guidelines.

That’s why I am a plaintiff, along with a top local businesswoman, in the lawsuit brought by Rose Law Group challenging the constitutionality of Proposition 208, potentially the largest income tax hike in Arizona history.

While the measure passed narrowly in November, the lawsuit does not challenge the election itself. Instead it focuses on the assertion that Proposition 208 violates the Arizona Constitution. Our constitution says that the power to tax and make tax policy rests solely with the Arizona Legislature.
