Legislative Alert: Oppose Today

Please use RTS to oppose the bill below:

HB 2014 – OPPOSE – Would allow anyone to ask the Governor’s Regulatory Review Council (GRRC) to review a Clean Elections practice, action or rule, based upon nothing more than the person’s belief that it exceeds the agency’s authority or violates Arizona’s Constitution.  A clear attempt to prevent the disclosure of dark money or any other attempt to keep our elections clean.

This has been expedited into committee and will be there tomorrow.  We need to oppose it ASAP via RTS.

Here is Melinda Iyer’s more complete description of this bill:

HB2014, sponsored by Leo Biaisucci (R-5), is a copy of last year’s attack on Clean Elections, which did not pass due to the early legislative shutdown. The bill would allow anyone to ask the Governor’s Regulatory Review Council (GRRC) to review a Clean Elections practice, action or rule, based upon nothing more than the person’s belief that it exceeds the agency’s authority or violates Arizona’s Constitution. The GRRC is entirely filled with political operatives appointed by the governor, some of whom have been trying to undo Clean Elections since its inception. The crux of the fight is over disclosure of dark money; Clean Elections is requiring disclosure of some groups and the GRRC is demanding they stop. If all this sounds familiar, it should. The bill builds on last November’s Prop 306, which gave oversight of Clean Elections rules to the GRRC. Scheduled for House Government & Elections Committee, Wednesday. OPPOSE
