PHOENIX — The fate of a voter-approved tax on the rich to fund education could depend on whether a judge believes the money raised will be “grants” to school districts.

The Invest in Ed group that backed the initiative says that’s how the language in Proposition 208 should be read, its attorney Andy Gaona told a judge on Wednesday.

He said the initiative spells out in detail how the money raised will go out in “grants to school districts and charter schools.”
