A recent poll conducted by Public Opinion Strategies, a national political and public affairs survey research firm, found Pinal County residents overwhelmingly support another version of the half-cent sales transportation tax ruled unconstitutional in March.

According to Glen Bolger, the firm’s partner and co‑founder, the public is willing to tax itself to fund long-term transportation solutions.

“Pinal County is poised to vote again, by larger than in 2017, for Propositions 416 and 417,” Bolger said on a recent Zoom call with members of the Pinal Regional Transport Authority.

Proposition 416 was the measure that outlined the county’s long-range transportation plan, and 417 was the tax-funding measure. The tax was found to be unconstitutional by the Arizona Supreme Court because it was two-tiered, with only the first $10,000 of any transaction being taxed and the rest exempted.
