Arizona: Bed tax gains support

Thu, Jan 7 2010 — Source: Phoenix Business Journal

Organized support is taking shape for a Scottsdale ballot measure that would increase the city’s bed tax in hopes of boosting the struggling tourism sector. The Jobs for Scottsdale in Support of Proposition 200 committee launched its campaign Wednesday at Chaparral Suites in Scottsdale. It urges voters to vote yes on Prop. 200 during a special election on March 9, when they will be asked to support increasing Scottsdale’s bed tax by 2 percentage points.
