The Arizona Appropriations Amendment did not make the 2012 ballot in the state of Arizona as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would have mandated that the Arizona Legislature not appropriate revenues in excess of 6 4/10% of total personal income. The measure, introduced during 2011 state legislative session, was assigned the formal title of Senate Concurrent Resolution 1019.
Path to the ballot
A majority vote is required in the Arizona State Legislature to send a constitutional amendment to the ballot. Arizona is one of ten states that allow a referred amendment to go on the ballot after a majority vote in one session of the state's legislature.
