GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — A Maricopa County Superior Court judge has rejected petitions for a sales-tax initiative in Glendale.

Judge Robert Oberbillig ruled Monday that a description of a proposed initiative backed by a group of business leaders was misleading and that the Glendale City Clerk had the right to reject the petitions.

Earlier this month, Glendale rejected the anti-sales tax group Save Glendale Now's 4,138 petition signatures.

The city says the description was misleading, the petitions were untimely and the group didn't include a required serial number.

In light of the judge's ruling, the Arizona Republic says Glendale's 0.7 percent sales-tax increase now will go into effect Wednesday.

It's expected to bring in about $20 million this year.

City officials who supported the increase say it was essential to avoid severe budget cuts.

Should Arizona lower the age when teens can obtain driving permits?

Arizona House Bill 2080 would allow teenagers as young as 15 to obtain a driving permit, only letting them drive with a licensed operator who is 21 years or older. The current driving permit age limit is 15 years, 6 months. Is this change a good idea?
