The Arizona Permanent Amendment will be on the November 6, 2012 general election ballot in the state of Arizona as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure would mandate that the annual distribution from the Permanent Fund be 2.5 percent of the average monthly market values of the fund for the immediately preceding five calendar years. This would take effect from fiscal year 2013 to fiscal year 2021. The formal title of the measure is House Concurrent Resolution 2056.[1]

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.
