4-5-15 Briefs

Republican Briefs

Briefs Editor   Frosty Taylor    repcomm@cox.net

Sunday. April 5, 2015 – EASTER SUNDAY

 

·       Vote In The GOP Presidential Straw Poll at presidential-straw-poll   Who would you like to see as the Republican nominee in the 2016 presidential election?

 

·       AzRA President Thayer Verschoor responds to Sen Debbie Lesko 4-4-15-briefs:  Senator, thou doth protest too much – and for the wrong reason. I like Senator Lesko. Her record (generally conservative) makes her vote against HB2246 troublesome. She ignored numerous constituent emails and phone calls. You can't say you trust parents then vote against "Parental Rights".  The facts: 

ü  I met with the Speaker because of our criticism that SB1469 established - in the budget - the SBE as a separate agency.  The Speaker believed AzRA was wrong, however, House Research Staff advised him that AzRA was correct;  and the Speaker and I forged a stronger/closer relationship.

ü  Neither I nor AzRA denigrated Superintendent Diane Douglas.  We have gone to the wall fighting for her and her interests urging the defeat of HB2184, SB1469, and supporting HB2190, and HB2246 which failed due to the vote of Senator Lesko.

ü  The Senator is inaccurate asserting that AzRA is a reincarnation of the PAChyderm Coalition.  A look at the AzRA Executive Board shows only two persons in the 16 member AzRA leadership core were in PAChy leadership.

Senator Lesko is right on one point - Liberals like to divide and conquer.  That applies to Democrats, but sometimes more so to (Pro-Common Core/Pro-Medicaid Expansion/Pro-Illegal Immigration) RINO Republicans that Senator Lesko joined in killing HB2246.  We are not stating she is a RINO, but the question as to why she joined them is appropriate.

E-mails that hold elected officials accountable do not distract and divide.  Elected officials inconsistent in following the Constitution, and the position of those they represent, cause distraction, division and the integrity of the Republican Party and many leave the Party in disgust.   Editor’s Note: This statement has been condensed to the policy limit of 300 words. See full statement Senator, thou doth protest too much – and for the wrong reason.

 

·       Precinct Committeemen Having Been Asking About The upcoming AZGOP April 18 meeting since it is traditional for interested PCs to sit in on the meetings (as observers, cannot vote). There has been no public announcement of the April 18 AZGOP meeting, so I sent an e-mail to AZGOP Robert Graham reminding him that – when elected in 2013 he had assured me that Briefs would receive the announcements/agendas and was welcome to attend all state GOP meetings. (Normal procedure for the past decade of prior state chairmen). Yesterday morning, Graham responded “… This is a new cycle and I am changing things up a bit. This will be a closed meeting. Those in attendance will be the Executive Committee, AZGOP Staff and the LD Chairman. Thanks for your interest. Have a Happy Easter.”  So there you have straight from the horse’s mouth… It’s a closed meeting.  Hmm… wonder how that is going to set with interested grassroots State Committeemen and PCs???

 

·       There Is Also Growing PCs Chatter about the lack of movement by the AZGOP on the “closed primaries resolutions” that were passed at the January 2014 and 2015 statutory meeting. Many are of the opinion that the AZGOP is delaying action on ‘closed primaries’ because they believe Sen John McCain cannot win a closed primary election.  They wonder if this one of the items up for discussion at the mysterious April 18 ‘closed meeting’?

 

·       ATTN: Town Of Gilbert Republicans:  The Town of Gilbert is looking for people to serve on the Planning Commission and Parks. See board-openings

·       RidersUSA will meet at 6:30 pm., Mon., April 6 at the Elks Lodge #2251, 2302 S Hardy Dr., Tempe. 5:30 pm dinner optional.  Agenda: "Flags For Our Fallen" and ID cards for illegals.

 

·       AZ Citizens Defense League (AzCDL) Update On The Legislative Session: At 3:34 am, Friday, April 3, the Arizona Legislature adjourned (Sine Die) their 2015 Regular Session. Any bills that did not make it through the Legislature and sent to the Governor are dead this year.  Once adjournment occurs, the Governor has 10 days (not counting Sundays) to make a decision on bills sent to him by the Legislature.   Generally, bills not vetoed by the Governor will become effective on July 3, 3015.

Bills Signed: The status and summaries of bills that AzCDL monitored this session can be found on our Bill Tracking page.   The following are firearms related pro-rights bills that the Governor has signed:

ü  HB 2396 (Rep. Franklin Pratt, LD-8) removes the restriction on the type of firearms a wildlife guide may carry.

ü  HB 2527 (Rep. Anthony Kern, LD-20), the AzCDL-requested bill that strengthens Arizona’s firearms preemption laws by prohibiting state agencies and political subdivisions from restricting the transfer of firearms.

Pending Governor Decision: The following pro-rights bills were sent the Governor and are awaiting his decision:

ü  HB 2399 (Rep. Franklin Pratt, LD-8) would add hunter harassment to the list of crimes that can suspend or revoke a hunting license.

ü  HB 2407 (Rep. David Stevens, LD-14) would require strict compliance for the ballot initiative requirements (signatures, dates, etc.).  With Bloomberg’s gun owner registration ballot measure coming, it is important to make sure proper procedures are adhered to.

ü  SB 1189 (Senator Kelli Ward, LD-5) would allow for the restoration of the right to possess firearms when certain convictions are set aside.

Comments about these, or any other bills, can be left at the Governor’s website.

 

·       AzCDL Notes That The Bills The Governor Signed (or was sent to the Governor), are fairly “safe.”  Meanwhile, every critical, (from AzCDL perspective)  important, pro-rights firearm bill suffered unexpected defeat this session.

ü  HB 2320 (Rep. Brenda Barton, LD-6) - AzCDL-requested bill that would exempt CCW permit holders from being disarmed when entering state and local government property unless everyone entering is screened for weapons, was killed during a Senate Committee of the Whole (COW) hearing by three Republican Senators voting with the Democrats.  This was after, HB 2320 passed out of the House.  Followed by the Senate Appropriations Committee hearing where an attempt to add poison pill amendments was exposed and quashed.  Two of the three Senators who switched sides in the COW hearing, Adam Driggs and Bob Worsley, voted for a virtually identical bill in the last session.

ü  HB 2431 (Rep. Bob Thorpe, LD-6) -  AzCDL-requested bill that would establish an interstate compact that restricts member states from enacting firearm transfer requirements greater than existing federal law, was held in the Senate Rules Committee while the clock ran out on the session.  The passage of a bill like HB 2431 is critical in derailing Bloomberg’s gun owner registration ballot initiative.  There will only get one more opportunity to pass a state compact bill before the 2016 election. 

ü  SB 1291 (Sen Steve Smith, LD-11) - would allow for injunctions, fines and civil suits when political subdivisions (counties, cities, etc.) disregard state firearm preemption statues, was a casualty of the final hours of the session.  After making it through the Senate, it was amended in the House and sent back to the Senate where it failed to get a final floor vote before Sine Die.  SB 1291 was heavily lobbied for by the NRA. 

ü  SB 1330 (Sen Kelli Ward, LD-5) -  would make any future federal acts that violate the Second Amendment invalid in Arizona, was held in the House Rules Committee while the clock ran out.

 

·       AzCDL Notes That “the Speaker of the House is a member of the House Rules Committee, along with the House Majority Leader and House Majority Whip.  The Senate Rules Committee is chaired by the Senate President and its members include the Senate Majority Leader and the Senate Majority Whip.  These are the most powerful members of their respective chambers.  If anyone can make a bill move or not move, they can. AzCDL questions, why the sudden change of heart by the Legislative Leadership?  Could it be there was a quiet effort to prevent “controversial” bills from reaching the Governor?  If so, at whose request?  Is it the lure of Bloomberg money?  Will AzCDL face the same obstacles next year?  From AzCDL perspective the defeat of these bills can be laid directly at the feet of the Leadership.  They had the power to get these bills to the Governor, but for whatever reason they chose not to.”

Meanwhile, AzCDL will continue to work to defeat Bloomberg and to prepare for next year’s legislative battles.  – Contact: Arizona Citizens Defense League (AzCDL), an all-volunteer, non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization.
