In March of 2017, the Arizona legislature passed a bill that sets the financial bar for initiatives and referendums higher than ever before. If we don't stop it, HB2404 will silence ordinary people by ensuring that only the most financially privileged people can place measures on the ballot. The Green Party has endorsed #Refer2404 - the movement to overturn this law and keep citizen initiatives/refereundum possible in Arizona.
From #Refer2404: HB2404 is another in a series of patterned behavior by the GOP controlled legislature for whom political challenges are an inconvenience. Enough is enough.
Initiative and referendum are the very first enumerated power of the very first enumerated branch in the Arizona Constitution and guarded from executive and legislative veto.
Ordinary people in the State of Arizona were intended by its founders to be the most powerful branch of government, and we should keep it that way.
