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 they stay or should they go?

Arizona lawmakers are advancing a bill allowing business owners to ask people to leave if they have service animals that are out of control or are not housebroken. The proposal originally would have made it a Class 2 misdemeanor for a second violation of lying about having a service animal. Should lying about having a service animal be a crime in Arizona?
