SB1270 is up for a committee hearing and vote on MONDAY, 02-10. Calls in support are needed all weekend long. Make sure the committee members know to vote YES on SB1270 on Monday!
Remember when the Leftists went crazy because Gov Brewer signed HB2305 into law last year? That bill made it more difficult for unscrupulous community organizers to tamper with ballots. That did not sit well with them, so they proceeded to mislead people into signing a petition to place the bill on the ballot, to be voted on by the people. It is very likely that the same misleading campaign of “voter suppression” charges will again succeed, with the help of the liberal media, and the bill will be voted down. If that happens, the legislature will be powerless to bring back any of its provisions again. Only another vote of the people could do that, which under current conditions will be impossible. On the other hand, if the legislature reverses (repeals) HB2305, some or all of its provisions may be brought back by the legislature. That is why it is so important that SB1270, or its House counterpart HB2196, be enacted. (That is why the AFL/CIO and the SEIU are so adamant that SB1270 be defeated.) Background: Brewer signs Controversial Election Bill into Law and Secretary of State Determines Election Law Referendum can Move Forward.
SB1270. Election Law amendments; repeal. CONTACT members of the Judiciary Committee. Please vote YES. (They meet at 2 pm.) Here is the Fact Sheet for SB1270 Bill.
STATUS – 02-10-14, Judiciary committee hearing and vote. It will need to pass by majority vote to move on to the next stage. The meeting begins at 2 pm. Read the Agenda here. (This is voted on in the same meeting as SB1294.)
YOUR ACTION IS NEEDED NOW. It doesn’t matter where in Arizona you live, take these actions today.
1. Call the committee chair and vice-chair. Be strong, but respectful. Urge them to support SB1270 and move the bill forward in their committee. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. (When you call regarding SB1294, you can also ask for a YES vote for SB1270.)
A phone call has as much as 10x the impact of an email.
2. Call the rest of the committee members. Again, be strong, but respectful. Urge each of them to take action to move the bill forward and vote YES on SB1270. If they do not commit to a YES vote, ask them why. If they’re undecided, let them know you’ll call back in a few days.
