Four Arizona State Reps Break Term Limits Pledge
"Arizona State Representatives Liz Harris, Keith Seaman, Rachel Jones and Leo Biasiucci reneged on their pledges they had made to their constituents by voting against a term limits resolution they had vowed to support. On the Arizona House Floor, Harris, Seaman, Jones and Biasiucci voted “No” on HCR 2016, a resolution for an amendment convention that would propose term limits on Congress. The state reps had previously signed a pledge stating, “I pledge, that as a member of the state legislature, I will cosponsor and vote for the resolution applying for an Article V convention for the sole purpose of enacting term limits on Congress.””

Arizona Senate Votes To Bar Official From Overseeing Some Elections
"The Republican-controlled Arizona Senate voted Tuesday to require that the state’s top election official not participate in overseeing elections in which he or she is on the ballot. That leaves the proposal one vote away from heading to Democratic governor and former secretary of state Katie Hobbs. The legislation proposed by Rep. Rachel Jones, R-Tucson, has its roots in unfounded complaints by some losing Republican candidates in the 2022 election that Hobbs put her thumb on the scale for Democratic candidates while serving as secretary of state. Those who accused Hobbs of having a conflict of interest included Kari Lake, who lost her race for governor to Hobbs, and Mark Finchem, who lost his bid to replace Hobbs as Arizona's top election official to Democrat Adrian Fontes. All Democrats in the Senate voted Tuesday against the measure, House Bill 2308, as did all House Democrats when it passed out of that chamber in February, saying it was prompted by baseless conspiracy theories."

This bill, had it become law, would be the same as laws covering a cabaret but with the words "drag show" instead of "cabaret". This is simply a sneaky attempt to outlaw drag shows.

As Hobbs Called For Collaboration, Some Republicans Literally Turned Their Backs
"As Democratic lawmakers applauded Hobbs’ education agenda, Republican Sens. Justine Wadsack and Anthony Kern stood and turned their backs to the governor. Earlier, GOP Reps. Rachel Jones, Alexander Kolodin and Jacqueline Parker walked out of the speech. Midway through the speech, Rep. Jake Hoffman exited the House floor. “It’s unfortunate that some members chose an immature stunt instead, but we have really tough issues in front of us and we need to work together to stop them,” Hobbs said during a news conference after the speech."
