The Arizona Sunset Law was proposed as an initiated constitutional amendment in 2008, but it did not qualify for the ballot.

The proposed amendment was supported by the Arizona Sunset Committee. They said:

On February 13, 2007, the Arizona Republic Newspaper reported that Arizona's Legislators are "seeking more control over initiatives," when, in fact, citizens should be gaining more control over the legislative process. This is, after all, supposed to be a "democratic" republic. The Legislature has proposed a five-year "cooling off period" in which voter approved laws would reign, but after that the Legislature could make changes. We propose the opposite. We propose amending the Arizona Constitution to read:

"ALL LAWS HEREAFTER PASSED BY THE ARIZONA LEGISLATURE SHALL AUTOMATICALLY EXPIRE AFTER FIVE YEARS UNLESS APPROVED BY VOTER REFERENDUM."[1]
