DALLAS - Supporters of a $42 billion transportation plan said yesterday they plan to sue Arizona Secretary of State Jan Brewer for invalidating the petition to place the proposal on the November ballot.

Proposition 203, known as Transportation and Infrastructure Moving AZ's Economy, or TIME, would have provided $42 billion of sales-tax backed bonds for road and light-rail construction in the state over 30 years. Supporters included home builders, contractors, Gov. Janet Napolitano,and others who saw the proposed constitutional amendment as an economic stimulus measure that would fund projects to unsnarl the state's growing traffic.
