Arizona business community slams proposed tax increases in huge budget bill

By Diego Píña | Chamber Business News

More than 50 Arizona business groups are urging the state’s congressional delegation to reject several tax increases included in the budget bill being considered by the U.S. House.

In a letter sent Tuesday to the delegation, the groups said, “The proposed tax increases that will pay for the massive $3.5 trillion reconciliation package will hurt Arizona businesses, employees, and consumers at a time when the state’s economy continues to grapple with the ongoing effects of the pandemic and acute workforce shortages.”

Signers of the letter included the Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry and local chambers of commerce from across the state, as well as groups representing various industries such as real estate, trucking, construction, tourism and agribusiness.

The enormous multi-trillion-dollar budget bill is a priority of Congress’ most progressive members, who are demanding its passage as part of a deal also to pass an infrastructure bill already passed by the U.S. Senate with bipartisan support.
