Mesa, Chandler voters approve home rule overrides

• East Valley Tribune
The home rule provision allows cities to spend more than a state-imposed limit that would base budgets on 1980s spending levels. The vote did not affect tax rates in either city. The home rule provision only affects how much cities can spend, as cities without home rule can only spend according to their 1980 budget with some adjustment for population growth and inflation.
