Canvassers are making a final push ahead of September 28 to get more than 118,000 signatures from voters for a statewide referendum on several new laws, including Arizona’s new so-called flat tax.
“I think people are fired up because of the governor's tax cuts and the agenda is really becoming clear,” said Beth Lewis, executive director of Save Our Schools Arizona, part of the Invest in Arizona campaign.
Meanwhile, a group called Arizona Deserves Better is calling for the repeal of three new election laws.
That includes a law, Senate Bill 1485, that would remove voters from the permanent early voting list who do not vote early in consecutive elections.
If the groups get enough petition signatures, the laws could appear on the ballot in 2022.
