 Legislator Joins Support

of Prop13 Arizona Tax Initiative

Phoenix, AZ. – Senator Jack Harper has introduced SCR1003 which, if passed, would put a Referendum on the ballot in November 2008 based on the wording of the Prop 13 Arizona Initiative.

The Prop 13 Arizona Committee commends Senator Harper for choosing to support their Initiative language and for using the constitutional scrutiny of the legislative system to validate the exact wording of their Initiative. His support has quieted the accusations of a few uninformed but vocal opponents who had wrongly claimed that the legal language of Prop 13 Arizona would not pass muster in a legal review.

The Prop 13 Arizona Committee will not accept a diluted version of their Initiative, if that is what the Legislature eventually passes. So, the Committee is forging ahead to get 230,047 valid signatures, to qualify the Initiative for the November 2008 ballot.

The Committee has found a way to overcome the shortage of public places allowing citizens to collect signatures. Volunteers can print their own petitions from the website, www.Prop13Arizona.com or easily obtain petitions anywhere in Arizona simply by calling Danny at Kinko’s, 602-404-3415. He will forward your order, at forty cents per petition packet, to the Kinko’s store nearest to you for pickup.

And, their "Call Five Friends" program encourages supporters to contact five people and have each one get a petition filled with up to 15 "easy" signatures from family, friends and co-workers they are in routine contact with.

Volunteers are being recruited to collect signatures at polling places throughout the state on February 5th for the Presidential primary election. Voters can turn out at the polls to vote and to sign the Prop 13 Arizona petition at the same time.

Prop13Arizona is proving to be non-partisan, with growing support for property tax reform among voters from all political parties.
