Referendums and Ballot Measures
Proposition 125 - Adjust Certain Benefits in the Corrections Officers' and Elected Officials' Retirement Systems to Alleviate Pension Underfunding
A “YES” vote will allow the State to adjust certain benefits for corrections officer retirees and elected official retirees in order to provide greater financial stability in the pension system; plan changes for newly-hired corrections officers include the replacement of the current permanent benefit increase with a cost of living adjustment tied to inflation and transition to a defined contribution system; plan changes for elected official retirees include a guaranteed cost of living adjustment tied to inflation.A “NO” vote will have the effect of maintaining the current benefit and contribution rules in the Corrections Officer Personnel Retirement System and Elected Officials Personnel Retirement System.
Proposition 126- Prohibit the State and Each County, City, Town, District, or Other Political Subdivision in Arizona From Imposing a New or Increased Tax on Services That Was Not Already in Effect on December 31, 2017
A "YES" vote will prohibit the State and local governments from enacting any new or increased tax on services that was not already in effect on December 31, 2017.A "NO" vote will preserve the State and local governments' existing authority to impose a tax on services in the future
Proposition 127 - Replace Arizona's Current Plan for Increasing Renewable Energy Use by Imposing a New Mandate Requiring Nongovernmental Electric Utilities to Increase the Portion of Their Retail Energy Sales Generated From Certain Types of Renewable Energy Resources to 50% by 2030
A “YES” vote will replace Arizona’s current plan for transitioning nongovernmental electric utilities to renewable energy with a constitutional mandate that, irrespective of cost to consumers, 50% of the retail energy sales of these utilities come from certain types of renewable energy by 2030 (neither pre-1997 hydropower nor any nuclear generation counts for this percentage); the current plan increases use of the same types of renewable energy from 8% this year to 15% in 2025. A “YES” vote also will mandate that these utilities increase their use of distributed renewable energy (energy locally generated and distributed from customers’ premises) to 10% by 2030; will require the new mandates be met by obtaining renewable energy credits, which may be created through renewable energy production or purchased from others who own existing renewable energy credits; and will require the Arizona Corporation Commission to enact implementing regulations.A “NO” vote will preserve the existing rules that govern the required annual percentage of retail sales of renewable energy by nongovernmental electric utilities.
Proposition 305 - Expand Eligibility for Education Empowerment Scholarship Accounts to Increase the Number of Eligible Students Enrolled in Kindergarten Through Twelfth Grade, With Greater Funding Provided for Low-Income Students.
A “YES” vote would allow Senate Bill 1431 (2017) to go into effect, which would gradually increase for four years the percentage of students in kindergarten through twelfth grade eligible to receive an empowerment scholarship account to spend on tuition, textbooks, educational therapies, tutoring, or other qualified forms of instructional assistance at a private or home-based school in an amount equal to 90% of the allotted funding that otherwise would have been allocated to the student’s public school district or charter school (for low-income students, the amount would be equal to 100% of the allotted funding); make changes to the existing empowerment scholarship program by requiring a policy handbook to be published for program applicants and participants, clarifying parental rights to appeal Department of Education eligibility decisions, and placing scholarship spending information on the Department’s website; and control the growth of the scholarship program by limiting new scholarship accounts each year through 2022 and eventually capping the number of new scholarship accounts at 2021-2022 fiscal year levels.A “NO” vote will preserve the existing law regarding empowerment scholarship accounts.
Proposition 306 - Prohibit Candidates Who Finance Their Political Campaigns With Public Funding From the Citizens Clean Elections Commission From Transferring Any Campaign Funds to a Political Party or Private Tax-Exempt Organization That Attempts to Influence Elections and Subjects the Commission’s Rulemaking Procedures to Regulatory Oversight
A “YES” vote will prohibit statewide and legislative candidates who receive public funding to finance their political campaigns from transferring campaign funds to a political party or a private tax-exempt organization that attempts to influence elections, and will subject the Citizens Clean Elections Commission’s rulemaking procedures to the regulatory oversight that applies to other state agencies by repealing the Commission’s exemption from the Administrative Procedures Act.A “NO” vote will allow the Citizens Clean Elections Commission to determine whether publicly-funded candidates are permitted to transfer their campaign funds to political parties or private tax-exempt organizations that influence candidate elections, and will leave current law unchanged regarding administrative oversight of the Commission’s rulemaking.
