(The Center Square) – With the Arizona Supreme Court to give the final say on whether the “InvestinEd” ballot initiative will end up on ballots this November, both sides of the argument are reaching out to make their case.

The ballot initiative, if it passes legal muster and prevails at the ballot, would place an additional tax surcharge on taxpayers who make more than $250,000 and funnel that money directly to school districts.

Maricopa Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury ruled on July 31 that the language of the initiative is too vague for the casual voter to understand the ramifications of the measure.
