Flagstaff, AZ – There's less than a week until Arizonans vote on a temporary one cent sales tax increase to help balance the state's books. A host of education, public safety, and many corporate leaders have spoken out loudly in support of Prop 100. On the "No" side, the loudest voice has been Farrell (FAR-ull) Quinlan, Arizona Director for the National Federation of Independent Businesses. He told KNAU's Daniel Kraker that nearly three quarters of his members oppose the tax increase.
