WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Chamber Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley today issued the following statement on Arizona Proposition 208.

“Just as businesses across Arizona begin to focus on recovery and rebuilding from the pandemic, Proposition 208 would impose a staggering 77.7% tax increase on small and family-owned businesses. If passed, Arizona would have one of the highest small business tax rates in the nation, destroying jobs and discouraging new start-ups. Arizona is an important contributor to America’s overall economic growth. Passage of Proposition 208 would be bad for small businesses, Arizona, and the American economy. The U.S. Chamber is pleased to lend its voice to the opposition of this misguided and potentially economically devastating proposition.”
