PHOENIX, Arizona: A possible repeal of Proposition 106 turned more bleak on November 29, as Arizona Governor Jan Brewer refused to call a special session of Arizona Legislature to discuss a proposal to place the repeal on the 2012 ballot.

According to Brewer, the governor did not want to be rushed into that situation, and also stated that she has seen "no evidence" that voters are ready to repeal the measure, which would dissolve the Independent Redistricting Commission.[1]

Approved in 2000 with 56.1% of the vote, Proposition 106 amended the Arizona Constitution to create the independent redistricting commission to re-draw the state's legislative and congressional district lines after every census.
