Text of measure

The summary from Arizona Legislative Council read as follows:

The Corporation Commission regulates certain utilities and railroads in this state and handles the incorporating process and regulates the securities industry in this state.

Under current law, the Corporation Commission consists of three members each elected to a six year term of office. Each member may only serve a single consecutive six year term and must be out of office for a full term before being eligible to serve again.

Proposition 103 would amend the Arizona Constitution to expand the Corporation Commission to five members and to change the term of office to four years. Proposition 103 also would limit a member to two consecutive terms in office and would require a member to be out of office for at least one full term before being eligible to serve again.

This proposition also provides for a phase in process for the additional Corporation Commission members. Beginning with the election in 2002, the two new members would both serve a two year term and all later terms of office would be for a four year term.[2][3]
