UPDATE: Pending bills in AZLEG (aka Little Shop of Horrors)

I'll update dispositions of these bills as I discover them.

On Il Duce's desk

1318 - abortion bill - SIGNED by DUCE - applauded by Herrod.

HB2407 - Long list of requirements for ballot measures - passed House with party line vote and transmitted to Gov.

HB2415 - Increases campaign contribution limits - passed House (Ackerley voted no)

SCR1001 - Repeals clean election law - Daily Star reports this one passed

SB1339 - collecting more than 2 ballots is a felony - Daily Star reports this one passed

Senate bills

1237 - relaxes requirements on campaign finance reporting by independent expenditure groups

1172 - amendment imposes gag on school districts

Senate bills now in House

HB2609 - previously SB1273 - REAL ID - (aka AZ do-not-fly list if not passed)

1340 - voter suppression - resurrection of HB2305 which voters turned down last year

House bills now in Senate

2180 - assessment menu

2190 - anti-common-core measure - KILLED IN SENATE

2246 - Ackerley's leave-assessment-decisions-to-parents bill - KILLED IN SENATE. Very strange voting pattern, actually bipartisan in both directions. See the votes here.

2055/2058/2368 - gaggle of sovereignty bills - entrails to feed the moon howlers

2643 - Another sovereignty bill: "Prohibits the state and its political subdivisions from using any personnel or financial resources to enforce, administer or cooperate with the Affordable Care Act." Amended in Senate, now back to House.

2069 - dimwitted idea to reduce income tax proportional to increased sales tax collection (aka "Why we don't have the money to fund education")

2320 - guns everywhere - KILLED IN SENATE

2431 - AZ's treaty with other like-minded gun-totin' countries (oops, states)

Apologies if I've missed any that might be on the most egregious list. You can check out all these, and more, at azleg.gov.
