Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin Rejected Tampon Tax Removal Ballot Proposal
KNWA reported that Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin rejected a proposed ballot initiative aimed at exempting feminine hygiene products from sales and use tax due to language ambiguities. The initiative, introduced on September 11, lacked clarity on whether it would affect the state’s compliance with the Streamlined Sales and Use Tax Agreement, specifically regarding “grooming and hygiene products.”
The Arkansas Attorney General’s Office recommended that the group advocating for the tax exemption revise the proposal’s wording, popular name, and ballot title. This rejection prevents the initiative from appearing on the November 2024 ballot.
