A group of Arizona education advocates are pushing a ballot initiative to raise the income tax on high wage earners to fund public education.
The proposal would raise the income tax rate by 3.46 percent on individual incomes above $250,000 or household incomes higher than $500,000.
The rate would increase by 4.46 percent for individual income above $500,000 and household incomes above $1 million.
Sixty percent of the new funds would go toward teacher salaries. Forty percent would be added for all-day kindergarten and other uses.
The measure requires more than 150,000 signatures filed by July 5 to get on the ballot.
