PHOENIX — The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce has come out against the two propositions being placed before voters in the Aug. 27 special election.

The chamber said it was opposed to the “Building a Better Phoenix Act” (Proposition 105) and the “Responsible Budget Act” (Proposition 106).

Prop 105 would amend the Phoenix City Charter to end all planned expansions of light rail projects, and not expend any funds for light rail extensions or other fixed rail line transit systems constructed on or after Aug. 27, 2018.

The measure would also redistribute revenue earmarked for light rail extensions to other city infrastructure projects.
