Proposition 301 would amend state law to continue the Arizona State Lottery until July 1, 2012.
All state agencies, including the Arizona State Lottery, have a scheduled termination date that is periodically reviewed by the State Legislature. In November, 1998, the State Legislature asked the voters to decide whether to continue the Arizona State Lottery until July 1, 2003. A majority of voters approved the continuation in 1998 and the Arizona State Lottery is now scheduled to terminate on July 1, 2003.
Article IV, part 1, section 1 of the Arizona Constitution prohibits the Legislature from amending any ballot measure approved by the voters at or after the November, 1998 general election without a three-fourths vote of each house of the Legislature. Accordingly, the Legislature may only extend the termination date of the Arizona State Lottery with a three-fourths vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. However, a majority of the voters (rather than a three-fourths supermajority) may vote to extend the Lottery’s termination date. With Proposition 301, the State Legislature is again asking the voters to decide whether to continue the Arizona State Lottery. If the voters approve Proposition 301, the Arizona State Lottery will be scheduled to terminate on July 1, 2012. If the voters do not approve Proposition 301, current law provides for the Arizona State Lottery to terminate on July 1, 2003. (1154)
