Collier not giving up on Chicago Cubs
Owners say Cubs will stay in Mesa, ...
PHOENIX — Grover Norquist, keeper of the no-tax-hike pledge, has stepped up to the plate in the debate over how to keep the Chicago Cubs in their Mesa spring-training home.
The founder of Americans for Tax Reform has sent a letter to Arizona lawmakers informing them that support for the car-rental tax envisioned in House Bill 2736 would break the no-tax pledge that 38 of them have signed.
"Make no mistake; this tax increase will be paid primarily by Arizona residents," Norquist wrote. "Arizonans renting replacement vehicles would be subject to this tax increase, and replacement vehicles represent the majority of the car-rental business in Arizona."
