Referendums and Ballot Measures
Proposition 100 Bailable Offenses
Amend the Arizona Constitution to additionally prohibit bail for any person who is charged with a serious felony offense (as determined by the Legislature) if the person charged entered or remained in the United States illegally and the court finds proof that the person committed the crime is evident or the presumption that the person committed the crime is great.
Proposition 101 Local Property Tax Levies
Amend the Arizona Constitution to remove unused taxing capacity and reset each taxing entity's limit to the actual tax levy of that county, city, town or community college district in 2005. Beginning in 2007, the new levy limit would increase by 2% per year, plus any new construction.
Proposition 102 Standing in Civil Actions
Proposition 102 would prohibit a person who wins a civil lawsuit from receiving punitive damages if the person is present in this state in violation of federal immigration law related to improper entry.
Proposition 103 English as the Official Language
Proposition 103 would require that all official actions of the government be conducted in English. Official actions include actions on behalf of the government that appear to present the position of the government or that bind the government. The proposition specifies situations in which state or local government could act in a language other than English, including:
Proposition 104 Municipal Debt
Proposition 104 would amend the Arizona Constitution to allow incorporated cities and towns to include debt for the acquisition and development of public safety, law enforcement, fire and emergency facilities and streets and transportation facilities in the 20% debt limit, upon voter approval.
Proposition 105 State Trust Lands
Allow trust land in urban areas that was classified or eligible for designation as suitable for conservation prior to 2005 to be conveyed to a county, city or town without advertisement or auction upon payment of compensation. Any lease, right-of-way or other use in existence may continue.
Proposition 106 Conserving Arizona's Future
Create a new seven member Board of Trustees appointed by the Governor, with the consent of the State Senate, to plan and dispose of all state trust lands. A majority of the members must have substantial involvement with public schools, such as university governance or administration, teaching or education advocacy. The costs associated with the Board are to be paid with a portion of the proceeds (5% - 8%) derived from the sale or lease of trust lands. Currently, all of the proceeds go to benefit schools and other beneficiaries of the state trust.
Proposition 107 Protect Marriage Arizona
Only a union between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage by the State of Arizona or its cities, towns, counties or districts. The State of Arizona and its cities, towns, counties or districts shall not create or recognize a legal status for unmarried persons that is similar to marriage.
Proposition 200 AZ Voter Reward Act
Proposition 200 would establish a $1,000,000 prize to be awarded to a randomly selected person who voted in the primary or general election. Anyone who voted in the primary or general election would be automatically entered in the drawing for the prize money, and if a person voted in both the primary and the general election, that person's name would be entered twice in the drawing.
Proposition 201 Smoke-Free Arizona Act
Prohibit smoking in all public places and places of employment, except as provided by the proposition. These exceptions include:-- Retail tobacco stores that are physically separated and independently ventilated.-- Veterans and fraternal clubs when they are not open to the public.-- Hotel rooms designated as smoking rooms.-- Outdoor patios
Proposition 202 Arizona Minimum Wage Coalition
Establish a state minimum wage law and raise the minimum wage to $6.75 per hour beginning January 1, 2007. The state minimum wage would be increased each January 1 for changes in the cost of living.
Proposition 203 First Things First for Arizona's Children
Establish an Early Childhood Development and Health Fund, consisting of revenues generated by an increase in the state tax on tobacco products, donations and state appropriations. The state tax on cigarettes would increase from $1.18 per pack to $1.98 per pack, and the tax on other types of tobacco products would be increased by a similar amount. The Early Childhood Development and Health Fund would be administered by the new Arizona Early Childhood Development and Health Board (Board) appointed by the Governor, with the consent of the State Senate. 10% of the monies would be used for administrative costs and 90% would be used for program costs. No more than 10% of the program monies could be used to fund statewide grants or programs undertaken directly by the Board.
Proposition 204 Humane Treatment of Farm Animals Act
Amend the Arizona criminal code to make it a class 1 misdemeanor to tether or confine a pig during pregnancy or a calf raised for veal on a farm for all or the majority of a day in a manner that prevents the animal from lying down and fully extending its limbs or turning around freely.
Proposition 205 Your Right to Vote
Require every state, county and local election to be conducted by mail-in ballots, while allowing an absolute minimum number of countywide polling places to be used as well. Each registered voter would automatically be mailed a ballot not fewer than 15 days before the election, along with a pre-paid, stamped envelope for the return of the voted ballot. All ballots sent to voters would be by non-forwardable mail, with address correction requested. Voters would be instructed to return their ballots no later than the close of the election on election day.
Proposition 206 Arizona Non-Smoker Protection Act
Prohibit smoking in all public places and places of employment, except as provided by the proposition.
Proposition 207 Private Property Rights Protection Act
Limit the use of eminent domain to situations where eminent domain is authorized by the state and the property taken is put to a public use.
Proposition 300 Public Program Eligibility
Changes related to eligibility, enforcement and reporting for certain state funded services

Proposition 302 State Legislators' Salaries
PROVIDES FOR AN INCREASE IN THE SALARIES OF STATE LEGISLATORS FROM $24,000 TO $36,000 PER YEAR.
