Arizona Propositions on the Nov 2, 2010 Election Ballot + my voting suggestions
Arizona Constitutional Amendments:
106…Vote YES…amends AZ constitution in an attempt to circumvent Obamacare.
107…Vote YES…amends AZ constitution to prevent Affirmative Action programs that favor minorities.
109…Vote YES…amends AZ constitution to make hunting and fishing a citizen’s right that can not be restricted by special interest groups….like those that don’t want animals and fish killed.
110…Vote YES…amends AZ constitution to allow for trading state trust land in order to protect land around military bases like Luke AFB from encroachment.
111…Vote YES…amends AZ constitution to amend the title of AZ Sec of State to AZ Lt. Gov. Makes AZ like most other states. Places Gov and Lt. Gov on the same ticket (same party). If Gov dies, leaves….the party in power, stays in power.
112…Vote YES…amends AZ constitution to allow 6 months, instead of 4 to acquire signatures for a initiative petition. 
113…Vote YES…amends AZ constitution to allow people to vote via secret ballot to stop people from being harassed into voting yes for creating a union.
Citizen Initiatives to revise AZ State Law: 
203…Vote NO…legalizes marijuana in Arizona. Forces Arizona to establish a costly regulatory system at tax payer expense.
Legislative referrals to revise AZ Statutes:
301…Vote YES…transfers $124 Million from Land Conservation Fund back into the general fund to be used for land conservation related costs to help reduce the current AZ $1.7 Billion deficit.  This fund was established by the Growing Smarter initiative back in 1998, when money was oozing out of the cracks. AZ can no longer afford to take $20 Million from the general fund every year to speculate in land investment. 
302…Vote YES…transfers $324 Million from the Early Childhood Development Fund to the general fund to be used to increase quality and access of early childhood development and health services to help reduce the current $1.7 Billion AZ deficit. The fund originated from $.80 tax per pack of cigarettes in a 2006 voter initiative.
