NOTES FROM READERS

Opinions expressed by readers are not necessarily those of the Briefs. Commentary running over 400 words is subject to editing

CALL TO ACTION:Tom Jenney Tom Jenney -Senior Legislative Advisor, Americans for Prosperity – AZ: Senate Bill 1147 is a Trojan Horse bill that would allow politicians to spend billions more on light rail and other transit boondoggles.TAKE ACTION NOW Advocates for light rail want the legislature to allow Maricopa County to extend the half-cent sales tax, currently set to expire in 2025, to include billions more for wasteful rail projects. They know that they can't pass light rail by itself, so they’ve included the tax extension in an omnibus transportation tax bill in an attempt to sneak it by taxpayers. Even worse, the latest language in SB 1147 would eliminate caps on how much can be spent on light rail and other wasteful projects. Politicians would be able to spend ALL THE MONEY on these useless projects. SB 1147 must be stopped. The legislature should not approve any bill that allows billions to be siphoned off from road projects and thrown into the light rail black hole. Here are some major reasons to oppose SB 1147:

• SB 1147 has no limits on how much can be spent on light rail and other wasteful transit projects.
• SB 1147 eliminates the requirement that the money must be spent on freeways or other regional road projects.
• SB 1147 does not require that all proposed tax increases for transportation occur on consolidated election dates. Pima County would be able to hold an election for a proposed tax increase in a low-turnout election.
• SB 1147 contains no transparency or accountability to ensure the money is being spent properly.
Please contact your lawmakers TODAY and tell them to vote NO on SB 1147. Jenney contact: tjenney@afphq.org

Joe RomackLD23 PC Joe Womack: I would like to make some comments regarding the proxy issue that has taken up a great deal of space in this publication. I am somewhat confused over some of the comments and would like to point out a few facts that many of you should know about.  There is a saying at the Legislature that "not everything needs a law". The issue with the proxy abuse is one such case. No legislation is needed to address the problem; it should have been corrected with a by-laws change. It should be noted that the Maricopa County Democratic Party does not allow the use of proxies as delineated in their by-laws.
A by-laws change to limit proxies was on the agenda at the AZGOP Statutory Meeting. However, after sitting through almost four hours of non-stop objections from Joe Neglia, who did the talking, and Tim Horn, who played the Puppet Master, the meeting was closed.  The bylaws that should have been voted on by “we the people of the GOP Party” were canned because a group of self-appointed “grassroot dissenters, the true conservatives” decided they had the right to take away the rights of all the other State Committeemen to vote. Finally, I find it rather hypocritical when Joe Neglia recently posted a resolution through his Legislative District to request that proxies be limited, when he was the very person who prevented a vote to do just that.

Gov Doug Ducey 2015 2AzCDL Action Alert: Governor Doug Ducey is determined to "do something" in Arizona in reaction to the school shooting in Florida. We have learned that the Governor expected to jam his proposed legislation down our throats on, Mon, March 19. It's expected to be done with a big media splash. There will be a special introduction in the Legislature, followed by votes done at warp speed, to have a bill he can sign sitting on his desk by the end of the day - unless the Legislature says otherwise. The proposed legislation will probably allow for forcible confiscations of your firearms if a family member, law enforcement officer (or maybe even a stranger?) decides you are a danger to society and gets a judge to go along with it. Think about it - family members and strangers, not medical professionals, will be able to determine whether or not you are mentally stable and put you through a living hell that starts with a not so friendly "visit" by the cops to disarm you. If we don't stop this now, no one will. If you aren't contacting your legislators now, no one will do it for you. If this legislation passes, no one will be there for you when the government decides you can't be trusted with your guns. Your email to send to all your Arizona State legislators (Senators and Representatives), urging them to reject the Governor's firearms confiscation proposal, has been prepared and is waiting for you to send. We've done most of the work. You just have to click your mouse a few times. You snooze, we all lose. Click here to send your email   Your legislators need to hear from you, letting them know that you are paying attention and expecting them to support your rights. Send your email today!
