Unfinished business in the Little Shop of Horrors (aka AZ government)

Here are bills I am tracking that, as far as I know, are still awaiting action by Dicey Ducey, Il Duce. Only the last one on the list has a good outcome for AZ (REAL ID to avoid our own do-not-fly list).

Let's promote ill health for AZ: HB2643 prohibits the state and all political subdivisions from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer, or cooperate with the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

AZ should secede from the union: HB2175 HB asserts and claims rights-of-way across public lands for the state, HB2176 requires the US to relinquish all constitutionally nonenumerated federal land within Arizona, HB2318 adopts the Interstate Compact on the Transfer of Public Lands (Compact).

Let's make it tougher to vote: HB2407 modifies requirements for initiative, referendum and recall and requires courts to strictly construe, and the petition proponents to strictly comply with these provisions, HB2608 changes the base number for determining the total percentage of signatures needed on nomination petitions, and decreases the percentage required.

Asserts state sovereignty over cities and counties (no "local control" for AZ): SB1241 Stipulates that regulations regarding energy and auxiliary containers are a matter of statewide concern and prohibits cities, towns and counties from enacting regulations regarding energy measuring or reporting or auxiliary containers.

Suck money from public schools: SB1332 Expands eligible students for Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESA) and establishes the Empowerment Scholarship Account Special Education Study Committee (Committee).

Prevents AZ's own do-not-fly list: HB2609 Requires ADOT on or before April 1, 2016, to issue a federally recognized driver license or identification license that allows the applicant to board a federally regulated commercial aircraft

Other than 2609, these are excellent examples of how to put the crAZy back in AZ.
