2008 Senate Joint Resolution L: Require supermajority for any service tax (Senate Roll Call 263)

Failed 25 to 12 in the Senate on April 24, 2008, to place before voters in the next general election a Constitutional amendment to require that would prohibit the legislature from expanding the sales tax to services, or creating a new services tax like the one passed and repealed a month later in 2007, unless a two-thirds supermajority in the House and Senate approved the measure.
