The Arizona Legislative Pay Cut Resolution did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state of Arizona. The measure was introduced by Senator Ken Cheuvront during legislative session during the week of February 5, 2010.[1]

The measure would have reduced legislative pay cuts that would coincide with any pay cuts that would occur to other state employees. Legislative members earned approximately $24,000 a year. The bill passed the first hurdle in order to gain ballot access when the Government Institutions Committee passed the bill, known as SCR 1038, with a vote of 5-2. However, the measure did not get sent to the ballot, due to legislature not taking any action on the bill during session.[2]

Constitutional changes

If enacted by Arizona voters, the measure would have amended the Arizona Constitution by changing Section 12 of Article V[3]

Path to the ballot

A majority vote was required in the Arizona State Legislature to refer a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment measure to 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.
