KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - The state Legislature has saved Kingman thousands of dollars by voting to hold an election in May to approve an education funding package, as the city was already planning a ballot.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed a package of bills on Friday that will pump $3.5 billion into K-12 education over the next decade. Voters will have the final say on the matter on the third Tuesday in May.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/1XMcB6X ) that the city had already chosen that Tuesday for an election on whether to implement a primary property tax.

Kingman City Clerk Sydney Muhle says she expects the city will have to spend at most $30,000 on the property tax question now that there will be a state-wide election, down from a previous estimate of $80,000.
