Arizona Legislature back at work due to Proposition 108
PHOENIX, Arizona: The Arizona Legislature still has some work to do in 2010, as Governor of Arizona Jan Brewer called the chambers back into a special session to revise a once certified ballot measure, which had previously been slated for the November 2, 2010 general election ballot. The measure, however, was struck off the ballot by the Arizona Supreme Court due to the ruling that stated that the proposal violated the state's single-subject rule.
The rule states that ballot questions can only as voters one question. The measure in question, Proposition 108, would ask voters to extend the right of Arizonans to use a secret ballot in union organizing votes and in public votes.
According to House Speaker Kirk Adams and Senate President Robert Burns, the measure may have the votes in the legislature to make the measure constitutional, therefore placing it on the ballot again.
