SMALL-BUSINESS GROUP SUPPORTS INITIATIVE THAT WILL MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT TO RAISE STATE TAXES

 SMALL-BUSINESS GROUP SUPPORTS INITIATIVE
 THAT WILL MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT TO RAISE STATE TAXES
 WHAT: A rally by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB)/Arizona, the largest small-business organization in the state, will be held to show support for the initiative to make it more difficult for legislators to raise taxes.
 WHO: Tim Mooney, state director, National Federation of Independent
 Business (NFIB)/Arizona
 Richard Chapman, state director, National Federation of
 Independent Business (NFIB)/Oklahoma
 Doug Wead, "It's Time!" chairman, former special assistant to
 President Bush
 WHEN: 8 p.m.
 Thursday, April 9
 WHERE: Hilton Pointe South Mountain, beneath the outdoor tent
 BACKGROUND: The "It's Time!" initiative is sponsored by a coalition of groups that favor fiscally responsible government in Arizona. Small business is strongly in favor of this, and is pleased to have the NFIB/Oklahoma state director as a guest, whose group supported the recent mandate that now requires a three-quarters majority by the legislature in order to raise taxes.
 According to the 1992 state ballot, an annual poll of NFIB/Arizona's 7,000 members, 87 percent believe that increases in state taxes or fees should require a two-thirds majority in the state house and senate.
 Arizona has suffered eight tax increases in the last nine years. The initiative will hold down spending rather than raise taxes.
 CONTACT: Tim Mooney of the National Federation of Independent Business/Arizona, 602-254-1541 or 602-377-9608; or Steven Latham of Braun Ketchum Public Relations, 213-385-3481, for the National Federation of Independent Business/Arizona.
