This citizen-sponsored Arizona Constitutional amendment will create a new "citizens' independent redistricting commission" to draw new legislative and congressional district boundaries after each U.S. Census. This amendment takes the redistricting power away from the Arizona Legislature and puts it in the hands of a politically neutral commission of citizens who are not active in partisan politics and who will serve without pay to create fair districts that are not "gerrymandered" for any party's or incumbent's advantage.

The Taxpayer Protection Act of 2000 will: (1) end all Arizona state and local income taxes over a four year phaseout period; (2) ensure that any new taxes be approved by a majority of voters; and (3) allow voluntary pledges in favor of elimination of the federal income tax and its replacement by a federal sales tax to be placed on election ballots next to the name of all candidates who take that pledge.

Consumer Choice and Fair Competition Telecomunications Amendment:
-Updates century-old telephone regulations to encourage consumer choice and competition in telecommunication services and to assure that all consumers and companies are treated fairly;
-Ends state government regulation of rates for local phone services in communities where two or more competing companies offer basic local service, and requires that consumers in those communities who have access to only one company receive the same competitive rates offered other consumers;

Normal foreign language programs are completely unaffected. Enforcement law suits by parent and guardian are permitted.

This citizen-sponsored initiative will eliminate the vehicle license tax (the car tax) and replace it with a one-time $8.50 plate processing fee and a $25 per year registration fee to be paid every two years. A portion of the revenues lost due to this substantial tax cut will be replaced by a 3 cent per gallon additional tax on gasoline to be used primarily (by state law) for roads and freeways.

Phoenix, AZ 85001-0022
602/254-8581
Citizens Growth Management Initiative. This initiative would require cities and counties to adopt growth management plans to limit urban sprawl. The plans would have to set urban growth boundaries, limit development and new city services outside the boundaries, require developers to pay for roads and schools to serve new subdivisions, and protect air and water quality. Plans could not be substantially changed without voter approval, and citizens could adopt plans and amendments by initiative. The initiative would also limit wildcat subdivisions, provide for public access to state conservation lands, and amend existing laws to conform them to the initiative.

Healthy Arizona Initiative Political Action Committee
Mark Osterloh, Chair
1240 North Third Avenue
Tucson, AZ 85705
520/622-3339
In 1996 voters overwhelmingly passed the first Healthy Arizona Initiative to provide healthcare for Arizona's working poor at the federal poverty level and fund six preventative health programs. Politicians have again failed to carry out the will of the people. This initiative requires that our recent settlement with the tobacco industry - which will bring Arizona several billion dollars - be spent on the health of Arizonans, starting with funding 1996's Healthy Arizona Initiative. It circumvents the politicians, returning power to the voters, because three years is too long to wait to see the doctor.
