While President Barack Obama and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney have grabbed headlines heading toward the Tuesday, Nov. 6, general election, there are numerous state propositions on the ballot.
The first block of propositions are proposed amendments to the Arizona State Constitution. The bills were written by members of the Arizona State Legislature but must be approved by voters to become law.
Proposition 114 would protect victims of crime from lawsuits by those injured committing or attempting to commit the crimes.
For instance, if a burglar trips and falls inside a home while burglarizing it, the proposition would prevent him for suing the victimized homeowner for his medical bills.
The proposition is backed by the Arizona Citizens Defense League and then-Arizona State Senate President Russell Pearce [R-District 18] before he was recalled by voters. No one wrote in opposition to Proposition 114.
For the full story with a rundown on Propositions 114, 115, 116, 117, 118, 119, 120, 121 and 204, see the Wednesday, Oct. 3, edition of the Sedona Red Rock News.
