II. BUSINESS AND THE CONSTITUTION 1) The state of Arizona has passed a tax reform bill that taxes property owners at a specified rate with the exception of mines and utilities. Both mines and utilities are assigned a higher rate of tax for their properties. A state legislator commented on the bill, "In some of these small towns, without the higher rate of taxation for mines and utilities, the schools in these towns would suffer because the property is worth nothing and there are no property tax dollars coming in. We have to tax these area's wealthiest citizens at a different rate and those citizens happen to be the mining companies and the public utilities." Is the tax constitutional? Result : Reason : 2) New York prohibits direct sales of wine by an out of state winery (but not a winery located in New York) to consumers located in New York. Instead, the winery must sell its wine to distributors, which in turn sell to liquor stores licensed by the State. The rationale for the law is that the State is trying to control the sale of alcoholic beverages to minors. The justification for enactment is based on Article XXI of the Constitution (which repealed prohibition) and leaves regulation of alcoholic beverages to the States. Cal Wines, a California winery, wants to sell its wines directly to customers in New York. New York prohibits Cal Wines from selling directly to New York customers. Should Cal Wines be prohibited from selling directly to New York consumers? Result : Reason : 3
