WEEK TWENTY LEGISLATIVE UPDATE, 5/27/23

LEGISLATIVE UPDATES

This week the Legislative Update is more of a comprehensive compilation of what has been done at the Legislature and at the Veto Queen’s (or Tramp’s) office.

Since there was ONLY action in the Senate on the 23rd this week, and they will be out until June 12th, unless they are called back in again, this update is easy.  Along with a few Hearings, there were 7 Bills moved to the Governor’s desk.  Five Bills from the Senate were vetoed and 2 Senate Bills were signed into Law.  Of the 5 Bills that were vetoed, 4 were Election Integrity Bills.  The previous week the Veto Queen vetoed 3 additional Election Integrity Bills.

The Tramp is working hard at vetoing almost everything that touches her desk!

The Veto Queen now has a total of 117 VETOES!  She signed 162 Bills into Law.  Her pen is now dry with nothing on her desk to destroy, for the time being.

At the request of me, I have also attached to this Update a separate listing of only the Election Integrity Bills that were introduced into the Legislature.  Each Bill will tell you what happened to them.  The Legislature, at least the Republicans, did their job… but, so did the Veto Queen and Representative Cook who did a number on us too!

The breakdown is as follows:

Senate ELECTION Bills STOPPED by REP COOK:

These 8 Bills are:

  1. SB1140          elections; voting centers prohibited
  2. SB1141          early ballot drop off; identification
  3. SB1142          voter registration; events; posting
  4. SB1143          voting registrations; ballot requests; source

HOW TO CONTACT YOUR LEGISLATOR

The RTS (Request to Speak) system is a necessary component to our legislative process.  This is an excellent way to share your positions on a particular Bill and let your legislator know that you support his/her legislation.  Please review this site and make sure you know how to use it properly.  The legislators depend a lot on your opinions and this is where you share them.

The link to sign up for the RTS system can be found here:  https://www.azleg.gov/alispdfs/Using_the_Request_to_Speak_Program.pdf

GENERAL INFORMATION

Once again, as a gentle reminder to all of the people who just joined these updates, this is how to read the attachments.  All the Bills listed on the attachments are mostly ALL the Republican Introduced Bills.

The Bills highlighted in Green are the GOP Bills I monitor on a daily basis.  The Bills highlighted in Gray, are ones introduced by LD2 legislators, Senator Kaiser and Representative Wilmeth.

And, the Bills highlighted with yellow in the status and date columns, are noted for your review to see their progression in the legislative process.  All Bills are up to date through 5/26/23.

And yes, I did remove most all the Bills highlighted in Blue that were Democrat sponsored.  If the Bills were not moving out of Committee like the Republican sponsored Bills, they have been removed from the monitoring cycle.

Remember, each Bill Number listed is a link to the Bill itself and you can access the status, documents and Agenda’s by clicking onto the link.  Even though I monitor and keep track of the Bills daily, I only send out Updates on the weekends.  So, if you want daily updates on any Bill, just click onto the Bill Number, and go to Overview or Status, for real-time information.  Don’t forget, there is an attachment with the Abbreviations used in the legislature to make your reading easier to understand.

As always, if there are Bills that I am not specifically monitoring, PLEASE let me know and I will add them to my list for you.

Respectfully,

Linda Brickman,
