Voters on (Nov. 6) resoundingly approved Proposition 126, which amends the state Constitution to bar lawmakers (and voters) from imposing any new taxes on services –  things ranging from haircuts to health care, from accountants to attorneys.

Coconino Community College seeks a tax budget override. See other related CCC regional news here
