Passing Of 3 Props: What Does That Mean For Arizona?
Home Passing Of 3 Props What Does That Mean For Arizona
November 8, 2018
Arizona voters had a chance to vote on five propositions this midterm election. The propositions on the ballot dealt with tax changes, renewable energy, state employee pension plans, campaign financing and school funding. So what does all of that mean for Arizona?
The following propositions passed: Prop 125, Prop 126 and Prop 306
Proposition 125 changes the state constitution to allow the Arizona State Legislature to adjust pension plans for elected officials and corrections officers.
Proposition 126 will forbid any new or increased tax on services that did not exist at the end of 2017.
Proposition 306 prohibits candidates from using their public financing accounts to give funds to political parties or tax-exempt 501(a) organizations that assist in influencing elections.
Two of the propositions failed: Prop 127 and Prop 305
Proposition 127 would have forced utility companies to get 50 percent of their energy from renewable energy sources by 2030, regardless of the cost to consumers.
Proposition 305 was a veto referendum challenging Senate Bill 1431. That means the people who got it on the ballot wanted the "no" vote before SB 1431 went into effect.
