In the past five years, how many states have passed laws requiring voters to approve local tax increases before they can take affect? How about in the past ten years?

The subject can be tricky. Prop. 13 put a cap of 1% on the assessed value of real estate in california, but after a couple of years, some areas got canny and added on fees for fire protection and the other services that had previously been covered by the tax. In one little town, now the fire protection fee is a multiple of the 1% tax. (I wonder if it all goes to the fire dept.??)
