Initiative would let Ariz. reject federal action

A Phoenix-based group that focuses on Constitutional freedom is proposing Arizona voters be allowed to reject federal actions.

Led by a Phoenix businessman, Checks and Balances In Government has filed a ballot initiative to give the state authority to disregard federal acts they feel violate the U.S. Constitution.

The proposed amendment suggests Arizona voters be able to reject an action through a referendum or state representatives.

Supporters say this authority would preserve the U.S. Constitution’s system of checks and balances.

The filing, which was announced Monday, means the group can start gathering the necessary 259,213 petition signatures to get the constitutional amendment on the November ballot.
