Prop 100 passing...

The results aren't finalized yet, but with 84% of the polling places reporting, support for the temporary 1% increase in the state's sales tax is outpacing opposition by nearly 300,000 votes.

Governor Jan Brewer has pledged that the revenue from the tax increase won't go toward tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy, but there is still a persistent rumor that there will a special session for a new "jobs bill."

This isn't over, and won't be until the composition of the legislature is changed in November.
