Opponents of the Vision 2025 sales tax increase have held their biggest rally yet against the proposal.

A couple hundred opponents gathered to talk about the proposal and to pick up signs against the hike. Many say the timing isn't right for a tax increase.

Others say the package doesn't include enough for development along the Arkansas River. Tulsa resident, David Mitchell, “I have no problem with a penny. No problem. It's just what it is going for."

Another Tulsa resident, Paul Romine, "I think we're spending too much money on things that won't do a thing for our economy."

The sales tax election is set for September 9th.
