Warren Mayor files lawsuit to overturn Proposal 1

WARREN (WKZO) -- Warren Mayor Jim Fouts is  filing a lawsuit seeking to overturn Proposal 1.

Voters approved the ballot question on Tuesday to phase out the personal property tax that businesses pay on equipment and replace revenue for local governments with the state's Use Tax. Fouts says the wording of the proposal was "confusing" and "blatantly unlawful."

Manufacturers and businesses have been calling for the personal property tax to be repealed for years, and it will be phased out from 2016 to 2023.
