The Arizona State Legislature has just introduced SB 1493, a bill made up of several bad measures aimed at trouncing our public initiative process. This anti-voter omnibus bill creates numerous specifications that would enable large amounts of signatures to be thrown out on a technicality. These impediments would make it much more difficult for citizens to get a measure on the ballot.
Please help stop bills in the Arizona Legislature that are aimed at weakening our public initiative process. These measures, if passed, would have a devastating effect on our citizen initiatives, our most powerful tool for helping animals.
