Letter: State sovereignty proposition galling
We in the Arizona Ballot Propositions OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) class voted on the last day of class. Here are the results for the propositions: Prop. 114: No, 80 percent; Prop. 115: No, 90 percent; Prop. 116: Yes, 80 percent; Prop. 117: No, 70 percent; Prop. 118: Yes, 90 percent; Prop. 119: Yes, 100 percent; Prop. 120: No, 100 percent; Prop. 121: Yes, 50 percent, No, 50 percent; Prop. 204: Yes, 70 percent.
The first seven propositions were referred by the Legislature, and we rejected four of those seven. The last two propositions were citizen initiatives. We tied on 121, open primaries, and approved 204, education funding.
We felt the worst of the Legislature-referred propositions was 120, declaration of state sovereignty. It would be two-faced to celebrate Arizona's centennial and then turn around and repeal the enabling act that allowed Arizona to attain statehood.
