will not appear on a ballot
An Arizona Legislative Immunity Initiative did not make the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of Arizona as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have banned immunity for legislators from being arrested during legislative session. The group who submitted the application for circulation of the initiative was People for Ethical Government. The proposal was filed on September 7, 2011.
A similar version to the initiative, a proposed legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, was introduced to state legislature during January 2012. The measure was sponsored by State Senator Steve Gallardo.
The following was information obtained from the supporting side of the measure:
- According to State Sen. Steve Gallardo, who proposed his own version of the measure in legislature, "When you start looking overall at the role of the legislator(s) and what they're allowed and they're not allowed, all of that is going to be looked at this year, and I think immunity should be at the top of the list."
