Franks objects to this.  His legislation would require the municipality that wants to impose the tax to hold a vote before they impose the tax, rather than putting the burden of collecting signatures on those who oppose the tax. According to Frank, SB 1555  "would require the people who are trying to raise taxes on the citizens to prove that 51 percent of the people want their taxes raised."<ref name=franks/>
