AZ-Thursday is deadline for ballot measure seeking more education funding

November’s election may be the battleground for what supporters and opponents are describing as one of the most consequential public-education funding initiatives in Arizona’s history.

The proposed ballot measure, called the Invest In Education Act, aims to bring in $690 million in funding for public schools by nearly doubling income-tax rates on Arizona’s highest earners.

The ballot campaign needs 150,642 valid signatures to qualify for the Nov. 6 ballot. Organizers haven’t disclosed a number in the 10 weeks spent circulating petitions, but have remained adamant that the measure — aided by a volunteer network of teachers and paid signature-gatherers — will make it on the ballot.
