An Arizona State Initiative Process Amendment, SCR 1006 did not make the November 4, 2014 general election ballot in Arizona as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. If it had been put on the ballot and approved by voters, the measure would have shortened the time that organizers of potential initiatives have to submit signatures for ballot consideration. Without SCR 1006, organizers have until four months before an election, which is usually in early July every even-numbered year. This proposal would make May 1 of every election year the deadline.[1]

The proposal was introduced by Sen. Michele Reagan (R-23). The formal title of the bill during the legislative session was Senate Concurrent Resolution 1006.[2]

Support

This measure was sponsored in the Arizona State Legislature by Sen. Michele Reagan.[2]

Path to the ballot

A majority vote was required in the legislature to send this measure before voters.

In 2014, nine other states besides Arizona allow a referred amendment to go on the ballot after a majority vote in one session of the state's legislature.
