The Board of the Fountain Hills Chamber of Commerce has voted against Proposition 126 citing concerns with amending the state constitution and limiting taxing at local levels.

During the October 2018 regular board meeting, the 17 member board discussed this issue and decided governments should not be prohibited from enacting new taxes.

While the Chamber does not typically support new taxes, the Board believes some taxes are necessary and should be controlled by local municipalities without state-wide decisions based on board issues.

Arizona Proposition 126, the Prohibit New or Increased Taxes on Services Initiative, is on the ballot in Arizona as an initiated constitutional amendment on November 6, 2018.

A “yes” vote supports this constitutional amendment to prohibit the state and local governments from enacting new taxes or increasing tax rates on services performed in the state.
 
A “no” vote opposes this constitutional amendment, thus retaining the power of the state and local governments to enact taxes on services in the future.
