The Arizona State Sovereignty Amendment, also known as SCR1016, will appear as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment on the ballot in Arizona for the general election on November 4, 2014. If passed, this state-sovereignty related measure, which is sponsored by Sen. Chester Crandell (R-6) and Sen. Judy Burges (R-22), would create a direct mechanism by which the use of state personnel and financial resources are guaranteed to be employed only for purposes that are congruent with the Constitution.[1][2]

Path to the ballot

According to Article 21 of the Arizona Constitution, a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment can go to the ballot if and when a majority of members in both the Senate and House approve it. After approval from the legislature, the proposed amendment goes on a statewide ballot for a popular vote of the people where, if approved by a simple majority, it becomes part of the constitution. On May 13, 2013, the House approved the measure with a vote of 36 - 23. Previously, on March 4, 2013, the Senate passed it 16 - 12.[2]
