TIME is not on her side

Looks like there may be even more trouble for the TIME initiative. The initiative based on the idea of helping businesses was NOT endorsed by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce. According to the Chamber, they couldn't get the 60% of the board approval that they needed to support the tax increase. If the pro-business people are only luke warm, how do they plan to convince the people on a fixed income who are having trouble putting gas in their car?

According to Espresso Pundit, the initiative also may have even more trouble qualifying for the ballot. The Secretary of State threw out over 20,000 signatures based on flawed petitions. That is probably between $60,000 and $100,000 that some business donated that was just thrown out the window. In addition, the other story we have heard is that validity tests are showing a higher rate of failure than in years past. This one could be close.
