190322 – AZRRT SPECIAL CALL TO ACTION

SAVE PROP 300 – KILL SB1217

This is an all-hands-on-deck request for action.

 

SB1217 WILL BE HEARD IN THE HOUSE EDUCATION COMMITTEE MONDAY MARCH 25

REQUESTED ACTION:

  1. Contact all members of the committee by phone or e-mail and request a NO vote on SB1217

You may do so by following the instructions found at https://azpeopleslobbyist.com/2019/01/committee-members/

  1. Go on the RTS system and register a NO vote on SB1217. Never mind if you have previously registered an opinion. You can do it again because this is a new committee in a different chamber.

 

This bill was introduced in the senate by a Democrat-leaning Republican. It passed when 5 Republicans joined all Democrats in voting YES

 

HERE IS THE PROBLEM WITH SB1217:

In addition to dealing with tuition reform, which is basically a smoke screen, it amends AZ Revised Statutes 1-502 by adding two simple words, “POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION”. This is how it works.

ARS 1-502 establishes the requirements for receiving local and state benefits. It requires that recipients show proof of lawful presence. It also contains three common sense exceptions. SB1217 adds one more exception, POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION. So, if one can receive state or local benefits in connection with POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION, without proof of lawful presence, how can anyone determine if the recipient is here legally? Without the ability to make that determination, how can the provisions of Prop 300 be enforced? Adoption of SB1217 will kill Prop 300 and undermine the will of the people.

 

HOW ARE WE DOING SO FAR?

Terrible.  Not only is SB1217 moving through the legislature unimpeded, but our side is being outnumbered tremendously when it comes to contacting legislators and expressing our opinion. If you think this bill should be defeated, then please do something about it. Make sure you do the REQUESTED ACTION, and also please contact neighbors, relatives, friends, etc. and ask them to also contact legislators and request killing of this bill.
