Gilbert Lawmaker Defends New Lid On Legislature’s Emails
"The Arizona Legislature will exempt itself from state public records law and destroy all email correspondence sent or received by lawmakers or staff after 90 days under new rules adopted by majority Republicans over vigorous opposition from minority Democrats. The Senate also completely exempted text messages on members’ personal phones, which lawmakers frequently use for legislative business, from release at any time. The House policy is not as expansive. The House package that was adopted despite unified opposition from minority Democrats also makes major changes to many other rules of the chamber, including limiting debate on controversial legislation to just 30 minutes and requiring the Republican speaker to approve future rules changes – even if a majority of members vote to do so. Rep. Travis Grantham, R-Gilbert, a member of the Republican leadership team, defended the new rules during the vote, saying the limits on debate were needed because Democrats were using lengthy floor debates as a “weapon.’"
