Ariz. citizenship proposal set for Tuesday vote

An Arizona lawmaker who proposed a challenge to automatic U.S. citizenship for children of illegal immigrants has sent his measure to a different legislative committee.

Republican Sen. Ron Gould of Lake Havasu City had planned to have the Senate’s judiciary committee consider his bill Monday, but has since scrapped that plan.

Instead, he will get a hearing Tuesday before the Senate’s appropriations committee.

Gould says the judiciary committee would have likely defeated his bill, so he moved it to another committee.

Gould is confident the measure would win approval from the appropriations committee.

Earlier this week, Gould called off a judiciary committee vote on the measure because he believes the panel would have defeated it.
