SUNDAY IS EASTER SUNDAY

 

·       Arizona Legislators Have Bickered, Rehashed and Delayed Bills since the session started. Yesterday we heard high praised from the Governor for the fastest, shortest session in 70 years.  We have also heard about the 1 am Senate shut down and the 3:45 am House sine die arizona-legislature-session-final-hours.  When leaders decided they were going to shut things down Thursday evening, Arizona-Legislature-Ends-2015-Session-After-Senate-Signs-Out), it thumped out the bills with the speed of a “wham, bam, thank you mam” road salesman.

Listed below are some of the bills that were approved between April 1 (April Fool’s Day) and the wee hours Friday, April 3 --  before some of them walked out from exhaustion or frustration – or both. Never mind that bills that should have been addressed lay discarded. Snow cones and stray cats took priority over ballot harvesting, gun laws, etc. Some of these discarded bills will resurface next year. Others are probably forever dead. These lawmakers are the same people who campaigned on promises to represent the citizens of this state. Little did we know that finishing session before Easter was more important than finishing business started in January. Some House members are angry that the Senate opted to shut down before the House was done voting (Arizona Legislature Ends: Senate Adjourns While House Still Voting). Taxpayers aren’t happy with the shenanigans either. We criticize the US Congress when they bail out of DC to catch their flights home for the holidays – leaving unfinished business.  Now we are seeing it on the home front. Legislative Final Hours:

ü  Legislature Denies Ducey Request For Inspector General Plan to find fraud and corruption was too vague, lawmakers say.

ü  Arizona Senate Votes To Kill Weights And Measures  The Arizona Senate voted Wednesday to abolish the Department of Weights and Measures — but not in the way sought by Gov. Doug Ducey.

ü  Arizona-Bill-Lets-Landlords-Evict-Tenant’s-Guests

ü  Lawmakers Extend Gas Tax For Environmental Cleanup

ü  Theme Of Legislative Session: Less Regulation  But lawmakers aren't shy about telling cities what they can and can't do.

ü  Arizona Senate Votes To Extend 1-Cent Gas Tax   In other developments, proposal to create state inspector general appears to be failing.

ü  No Liquor Near Schools, Churches

ü  Lawmakers Reject Election Changes, Alter Speed Limit  The 2015 state legislature ended with a downgrade of speeding under 10 mph and rejection two more election law change

ü  Counties Get Leeway On Stray Cats

ü  Lawmakers Reject Ducey's Effort To Create Inspector General Post

ü  Final OK For 'Revenge Porn' Bill  Arizona lawmakers gave final approval Thursday to legislation designed to cut down on so-called “revenge porn.”

ü  AZ Legislature Approves Real ID Driver's Licenses   Bill authorizing optional Real ID compliant drivers license goes to governor for  signature.

ü  Uber, Lyft Drivers Could Face New Rules In Arizona  This legislation mandates at least $250,000 of liability coverage.

ü  Bill Forbidding Plastic Bag Limits Goes To Ducey  Sen. John Kavanagh, R-Fountain Hills, said landfill space is not a problem in Arizona.

ü  New Law Frees Builders From Affordable Housing Requirements Cities and counties are going to be prohibited from requiring developers to provide affordable homes or apartments.

ü  Ducey Officially OK's School Snow Cones  Bill OKs sweets at fundraisers, gets around federal food guidelines.

ü  House Vote Would End Public Campaign Funding  If measure passes, voters would be asked to appeal 1998 law.

ü  Gov. Ducey Signs Anti-Begging Measures Into Law   One measure outlaws holding up traffic to ask for money.

 

·       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 last night 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). This 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’?

 

·       The Emery Riddle University Republicans meet at 7 pm., Monday evenings in the ERU-King Engineering Bldg. Contact: Joey Cilano cilano.joey@gmail.com

 

·       An Immigration Forum Is Scheduled  at 5:30 pm., Fri., April 17 at the Pima Community College Center for the Arts Proscenium Theatre West Campus, 2202 W Anklam Rd., Tucson. A flyer carrying the photos of  Congressmen Raul M. Grijalva and Luis V Gutierrez reads: “Time to attend a protest at PCC to show our displeasure towards DACA and PACA.”  The flyer doesn’t say who is sponsoring the foum/protest.

 

·       Arizona Sheriff Babeu Slams ICE Plan to Free Illegal With TB   Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu slammed federal immigration officials for creating a huge public risk with their plans to release an illegal alien with drug-resistant tuberculosis into the largest city in Pinal County. "This is unacceptable — and it's reckless disregard for the public's safety,"

·       LD21 Sen Debbie Lesko:  It is a sad day indeed when, Thayer Verschoor, someone who I have known for years and someone who hugs me when he sees me, has decided to call Republican legislators names and mock the governor in a recent message posted in the MCRC briefs.  This year Thayer, who is writing as the president of the AZ Republican Assembly, a group that has gone by several previous names, has mocked Governor Ducey, denigrated Superintendent Douglas, and now has resorted to calling Republican legislators names...the same legislators who vote 95- 99% of the time his way. I have been told that both the Senate President and House Speaker have met with Thayer about some of his emails, but apparently to no avail.  This is not the way I expect good people to treat each other.  I hope that those of you reading this will agree.  I’ve been heavily involved with the Republican Party in Arizona for almost 20 years. This is my 7th year in the legislature and I have been “ranked” conservative by many organizations, including a different named group Thayer was involved in before. I have seen through the years, how this name calling distracts and divides us. The liberals like to divide and conquer.  Let’s not let a person or group that writes derogatory emails do the same.
