Also, new debts incurred by the state would have required Legislature to identify money sources outside of the state's general fund. The measure, also known as Senate Concurrent Resolution 1060, would have excluded local governments, the state Transportation Department and state universities.
Path to the ballot
The Arizona State Senate voted and passed the bill, thus sending it to the Arizona House of Representatives for a vote of its own in order to be sent to the ballot. A majority vote was required in the Arizona State Legislature to refer a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment measure to the ballot. The measure, however, did not make the ballot. Arizona is one of ten states that allows a referred amendment to go on the ballot after a majority vote in one session of the state's legislature.
