In 1992, Arizona voters decided — by a wide margin — to amend the state constitution to make a legislative-approved tax increase impossible without lawmakers approving that increase by at least a two-thirds margin.

And lawmakers would need a three-fourths vote to override a governor’s veto of a proposed tax hike.

In November, voters will determine whether they also want to limit any future introduction of a tax on services in Arizona.

Those services would include things like real estate transactions, doctor visits and pet grooming. That measure is known as Proposition 126.

David Lujan, from the Arizona Center for Economic Progress, and Patrick Lewis, from the Arizona Association of Realtors, joined The Show to debate the measure.
