    'Millionaire Tax' Question Could Be Revived

    A proposed "millionaire tax" ballot question may not be dead in Massachusetts, after all.

    A day after the state's highest court struck down the question, a state senator said he'll revive it by filing a proposed legislative amendment to the state constitution in January.

    Democratic Sen. Jason Lewis said his proposal would be identical to the ballot question but, because it would be a legislative proposal, would not be subject to the same constitutional challenges.

    If it receives enough support in two successive sittings of the Legislature, the question could go before voters as soon as 2022.

    The proposed amendment would impose a surtax of 4 percent on any portion of an individual's annual income that exceeds $1 million.

    The money would go to help pay for education and transportation needs.
