BALLOT QUESTIONS GAIN NUMERICAL IDENTITIES
Expect to hear a lot in the coming months about Questions 1, 2 and 3. Massachusetts voters in November will decide the fate of questions slashing the sales tax rate to 3 percent from 6.25 percent, overturning last summer’s new tax on retail alcohol sales and repealing the state’s comprehensive permit law known as Chapter 40B. Secretary of State William Galvin on Thursday announced the numbers attached to each question. The alcohol sales tax repeal question will be Question 1, the comprehensive permit law repeal is Question 2 and the initiative petition to reduce the sales tax to 3 percent will be Question 3.
