Hello Everyone:

Since our last update November 11, there has not been too much activity, but here are some observations for your consideration:

PERSONNEL CHANGES. A few days ago, House Speaker Bowers announced quite a few changes in the composition of the House Standing Committees. Most likely there will be more changes in both chambers between now and the opening of the 2022 session on January 10. We will be posting those changes on our website, https://azpeopleslobbyist.com/ later on. In the meantime, you may view the press release that lists all the current changes at:

BILL READING. This is where it all begins. There is no way to make intelligent decisions in support of or opposition to legislation unless the bills are read and opinions are submitted. You don’t have to be on my list of “bill readers” in order to read and react to bills, but it helps a lot if I have a list of those who are planning on being so engaged.

COMMUNICATIOS REMINDER: Currently, the three most often used methods of expressing our opinions to legislators are phone, email, and the RTS system. If you are not familiar with the RTS system, here are two sources of information:

DON’T BE SELFISH, SHARE WITH OTHERS. It is nice to share information with those who agree with us, and we should continue to do so. But it is just as important to reach out to those friends, relatives, neighbors, and co-workers who may not be quite as well informed as we are. This year again, as I canvass my neighborhood, doing my PC duties, I will be asking neighbors to agree to receive my calls-to-action emails. I know many of you are already sharing with others, and I encourage you to continue and expand that activity.

LEGISLATIVE ACTIVITY – PREFILING. So far, 25 bills have been introduced. Of those, only 8 have been deemed worthy of tracking by our team. Note that all 8 have been marked “y”, meaning that we support them. That number, and/or our position, may change as more of you read bills and provide input.
