Alabama Voters Reject Tax Plan

MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- By a two-to-one ratio, Alabama voters last week rejected a $1.2-billion tax plan backed by Gov. Bob Riley. The ballot measure called for a variety of tax reforms, including a provision that raised the state car rental tax from 1.5% to 3%.

The plan also called for new taxes on vehicle repair, installation and maintenance work.
