The Arizona Initiative Tax Approval Amendment did not make the November 2012 statewide ballot in the state of Arizona as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have mandated that any citizen initiative dealing with tax issues be approved by 60% of voters, rather than a simple majority. The tax issues that would have been required to be approved by a supermajority, if proposed by citizen initiative, included: an increase of an existing tax, the proposal for a new tax, and the reduction of existing tax. The formal title of the measure in 2011 legislative session was SCR 1032.[1]

Path to the ballot

A majority vote is required in the Arizona State Legislature to send a constitutional amendment to the ballot. Arizona is one of ten states that allow a referred amendment to go on the ballot after a majority vote in one session of the state's legislature.
