180105-2050 AZRRT INITIAL UPDATE – 2018 KICK OFF

Hello everyone:

 As this is written, we are about 60 hours away from the opening of the second regular session of the 53rd AZ legislature, which is a good time to share some observations with you all. 

  1. Opting Out: We do not spam. Everyone on this list is there as a result of a specific request. However, people’s interests and situations change, so if anyone wishes to be removed from this distribution list all they need to do is respond to this message, or any other message, with a request to be removed. They will be removed immediately, no questions asked.
  2. What to Expect: Over the next 100 or so days that the session is supposed to last, you will be receiving periodic (mostly weekly) messages to (a) Inform you of how our legislators voted, which is useful in determining support or opposition at election time, without relying on campaign rhetoric, which often is notoriously inaccurate at best and misleading at worst. (b) To alert you of upcoming activity on the bills we are tracking, to facilitate the expression of your opinions by contacting legislators and participating in committee hearings, both in person and remotely from the convenience of your home.
  3. Useful information and tools: In our website, at www.azpeopleslobbyist.com you will find four articles that should be a tremendous help to newcomers to this endeavor and a useful refresher to those who have been at it for a while. Their titles are: USING REQUEST TO SPEAK, E-MAILING LEGISLATORS, HOW AN IDEA BECOMES LAW, and HOW TO OBTAIN BILL INFORMATION.
  4. New Look? We have grown enough that we are approaching the point at which it will become very difficult to continue to use a simple e-mail program to distribute our information, so we are looking for a better distribution tool. As a result, you may soon notice a change in the look of our messages, but the content will remain the same.

These are very challenging times for conservatives in AZ. We have a Republican majority in both chambers, but not a conservative majority. In the house we have five Republicans that consistently vote with Democrats on important issues. Fortunately that still leaves us with a conservative majority albeit paper thin. The picture in the senate is dismal. Three Republican senators consistently join Democrats in defeating conservative legislation. That is enough to give us a 14-16 minority. So, if we care about the state of our state, we can no longer afford the luxury of sitting on the sidelines. On that note…

Happy activism to y’all.

Jose B.

It's going to be an interesting year. Lock and load, people. Lock and load.

Thank you, Jose, for doing this. It is a thankless but very important task.

My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government.
