Arizona "Honest Officials Act" Initiative (2012)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The Arizona Honest Officials Act did not make the 2012 ballot in the state of Arizona as an initiated state statute. This measure would have established a procedure by which a public official would be prosecuted for "disseminating false information" of public concern. The act would have mandated that the attorney general or county attorney investigate any written complaint filed against a public official by a person living in the state and then prosecute the official if the complaint was found to be valid. The initiative was proposed by the Fox Petitions Supporting Honest Officials Act when the group filed a petition with the Arizona Secretary of State's office on September 28, 2011.
Path to the ballot
Since the measure was categorized as an initiated state statute, supporters must have collected 172,809 signatures by the July 5, 2012 petition drive deadline in order for the proposal to have been placed on the ballot.
According to reports, the measure did not file signatures by the deadline.
