State Legislative Tracker: Recall petition filed against Arizona legislator Apr 14, 2014

Edited by Joel Williams
This week’s tracker includes a look at the recall attempt against an Arizona lawmaker.

  • Arizona: Senator Kimberly Yee (R) has become a target for recall by supporters of medical marijuana research after she refused to hold a committee hearing on HB 2333, effectively killing the bill in the Senate. Because she blocked the bill, Yee is being accused of a "callous abuse of power" in the recall statement. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Ethan Orr (R), would allow for some of the revenue from medical marijuana users and dispensaries to partially fund a study at the University of Arizona on the use of the drug to help treat post-traumatic stress disorder in military veterans. The bill passed the House in a 52-5 vote on March 10. Secretary of Arizona Veterans Assistance Committee, Kathy Inman, said that Yee killed the measure by using her position as chair of the Senate Education Committee and refusing to give it a hearing. Yee said that she is "not opposed to university research to assist veterans" but disagrees with any state money being used for research of marijuana and would rather use state money to raise awareness about the negative effects the drug has on children's health. A total of 18,297 signatures will need to be collected in Senate District 20 by August 2 to force a recall election.[1][2][3][4]
