As lawmakers return to Arizona Capitol, ending apartment rental tax becomes a bargaining chip

A bill passed in June to repeal rental tax in Arizona was withheld from Gov. Katie Hobbs and is now a bargaining chip in negotiations for the Proposition 400 transportation tax renewal as lawmakers return to the Capitol Monday.The tactic appears to conflict with a 2009 state Supreme Court ruling that said the Legislature must send bills it passes to the governor “with no more delay than is reasonably necessary to complete any ministerial tasks and otherwise effect their orderly transmittal.”Hobbs never demanded to receive the bill, which passed the Legislature on June 13. Though she vetoed an earlier version of the bill in February, the new one is part of a potential deal on Proposition 400, according to real estate lobbyist Tom Farley, who supports the tax repeal.
