Small employers get shortchanged under rules for premium rebates
Everyone who has health insurance — whether individually or through their employer — may have recently received a premium rebate from their insurance provider due to the Affordable Care Act.
Candidates’ identities will be in question in ‘jungle primary’
I plan to vote against Proposition 121 because I won’t know the true identity of the candidates.

From 2003 to 2011, Bill Konopnicki honorably represented the 5th Legislative District of Arizona and was a champion of countless public policy issues, including health care, criminal justice reform, foster care, and education reform.
Prop. 115 would increase partisan politics in judicial selection
The Maricopa County Bar Association, a voluntary organization comprised of over 3,000 members of the Maricopa County legal community, urges you to vote ‘no’ on Proposition 115, SCR 1001.
‘Top-2’ primary is like candy — offers quick satisfaction but ultimately rots teeth

Arizona’s Solar Energy Credit Program is a bait-and-switch
Our company evaluated the cost/payback to add solar panels to our auto mall building. The Federal Tax Credit helped shorten the time it would take to recoup our investment, but the Arizona tax credit — 10 percent of the purchase price — placed the project into the “let’s do it” category.

Here is a story from my own experience.

The U.S. Supreme Court drew the line in what is and is not a state’s role in immigration enforcement in both the Legal Arizona Workers Act (Employer Sanctions) and SB1070 opinions.
Democrats’ attack on Flake is history sadly repeating itself
The Democratic Party has been foolish in its rush to question and attack U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake’s commitment to civil and human rights, all in the name of defending black South Africans. The argument offered up by the party that most black Americans hold membership in today, sadly reminds many of those same blacks of the positions the party had taken in the 1940s and 1960s.
