The Arizona Fund Appropriations Amendment did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state of Arizona as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure, also known as, HCR 2057, would have allowed lawmakers to decide whether or not to appropriate all “non-custodial” federal funds given to the state.[1]

According to reports, those particular funds were block grants that provide Arizona with discretion in relation to development of a service program.

Path to the ballot

The Arizona House of Representatives planned to debate the issue on March 23, 2010 and gave preliminary passage of the amendment that same day. A majority vote was required in the Arizona State Legislature, in both chambers, to refer a measure to the ballot. Arizona is one of ten states that allows a referred amendment to go on the ballot after a majority vote in one session of the state's legislature. However the measure was not sent to the ballot.[1][2]
