Conserving Arizona's Future is a simple and straight forward reform that will conserve and protect approximately 690,000 acres of some of the most important natural areas in Arizona. For the first time, state trust land will be permanently set aside for conservation purposes protecting more of Arizona's land and water for future generations. The initiative will also protect and guarantee an essential classroom funding stream through improved planning and management of state trust lands, require local communities to cooperate in the planning and development of trust lands, and provide local authorities the power to limit and control development.

201 I-05-2006 Smoke-Free Arizona Yes on I-05-2006 2929 South 48th Street Tempe, Arizona 85282 602/414-5339 Bill Pfeifer, Chairman and Applicant John Rivers, Treasurer June 20, 2006 Yes Smoke-Free Arizona Act
The Smoke-Free Arizona Act protects the right of Arizonans to breathe clean indoor air by prohibiting smoking in enclosed public places and places of employment. Breathing second hand smoke harms children, seniors and people with existing health problems the most. Enforcement by the Arizona Department of Health Services will be paid for by a tax on cigarettes of one tenth of one cent per cigarette. Limited exceptions are provided such as private residences, retail tobacco stores, and outdoor patios. No smoking signs will be posted in all areas where smoking is prohibited.

202 I-13-2006 Arizona Minimum Wage Coalition Yes on I-13-2006 2800 N. Central Ave., Ste. 1000 Phoenix, AZ 85004 480/784-4890 Rebekeh Friend, Chair 602/631-4488 Sarah Markey, Treasurer 602/254-5299 June 26, 2006 Yes Arizona Minimum Wage Coalition
The Raise the Minimum Wage for Working Arizonans Act increases the minimum wage to $6.75 an hour for working Arizonans starting in 2007. So that Arizona workers continue to receive fair paychecks that keep up with inflation, the Arizona minimum wage will then be adjusted one time each year to keep pace with the cost-of-living. The initiative applies the Arizona minimum wage law statewide because in Arizona no fulltime worker should get a wage so low that they live in poverty.

203 I-16-2006 First Things First for Arizona's Children P.O. Box 34891 Phoenix, AZ 85067 602/266-5118 Nadine Mathis Basha, Applicant & Chairman 602/266-5118 Joshua J. Allen, Treasurer 928/525-2320 June 28, 2006 Yes First Things First for Arizona's Children
All Arizonans benefit from voluntary early childhood education. Children start school ready to succeed; parents are able to keep good jobs and earn highter incomes; and taxpayers save money because early childhood education lowers drop-out rates, reduces crime, and cuts the cost of social services. This initiative would increase funding for early childhood developement and health programs. Local councils who know their communities' needs would distribute the majority of the funding, with oversight by a statewide board subject to audits and other accountability measures. Dedicated funding would come from an increase on the sales price of tobacco products.

Arizona citizens are concerned about the cruel and inhumane treatment of animals; the Humane Treatment of Farm Animals Act, recommended by the Arizona Humane Society and The Humane Society of the United States, requires that pigs during pregnancy and calves raised for veal must be given sufficient space to turn around, lie down, and fully extend their limbs when tethered, or confined in crates, cages, or other enclosures; includes exceptions, such as for veterinary purposes and during the pig's prebirthing period; the Act allows six years to adopt more humane practices and does not require mandatory expenditure of state revenues.

The Arizona Non-Smoker Protection Act creates a balanced, reasonable, consistent, statewide non-smoking law, protecting minors and preserving private property rights. The Act will not raise taxes or create new government programs. The Act would prohibit smoking in enclosed public places and places of employment, except bars and tobacco shops. Minors are not permitted in any part of a bar or tobacco shop that permits smoking. Signs must notify patrons and employees where smoking is permitted. If part of a larger business, the bars and tobacco shops must be separated by floor to ceiling partitions and separate ventilation systems.

207 I-21-2006 AZ Home Owners Protection Effort (AZ-HOPE) 3431 W. Thunderbird, #302, Phoenix, AZ 85053 602-315-1737 Lori Klein, Applicant 623-218-6090 Carol Springer, Chairman 928-445-1363 John R. Norton, Treasurer 602-954-8812 July 6, 2006 Yes Private Property Rights Protection Act
The Private Property Rights Protection Act is Arizona's response to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision allowing government to seize land for private commercial development. This Act protects private property by defining public use to mean only the public will own and use the land and declares that the public benefits of economic development, including increased tax revenues and employment, shall not constitute a public use. The Act ensures that Arizona citizens receive just compensation if they lose their property or lose the value of their property when government takes or enacts a law that diminishes the value of private property.
