PHOENIX -- Gov. Jan Brewer has flexed her fiscal conservative muscles by vetoing a bill that would have allowed Coconino Community College to seek voter approval to permanently increase its primary property tax rate.

HB2125 was designed to help the Flagstaff-based community college get past a funding crunch brought about by an unusually low property tax levy.

In Brewer's veto letter Wednesday she said the college can seek voter approval for a secondary property tax levy. She also wrote that while she appreciates the college's financial struggles she said granting one jurisdiction what she called unprecedented taxing authority will prompt other taxing agencies to seek similar treatment.
