An Arizona Political Use of Paychecks Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in Arizona as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have prohibited all employers from taking money from an employee's paycheck and using it for political purposes without the express written permission of the employee.[1][2]

Background

In 2011, the state legislature considered Senate Concurrent Resolution 1028, titled "Protect Employee Paychecks from Politics Act." The resolution was passed by the Senate on March 14, 2011. The measure was never approved by the House, but, if it had, it would have been referred to voters for approval.[3][4]
