Poll results

Response Percent
Yes. Increasing the sales tax slightly is a good way to pay for much-needed ongoing maintenance on the state’s university campuses.
No. The Legislature should take care of the building maintenance problems with existing revenue without raising taxes.
No. A sales tax is a regressive tax that hits those with low incomes the hardest. The Legislature should first look at increasing income or corporate taxes.
