A proposal to change Arizona’s Voter Protection Act would make it easier for lawmakers to repeal or alter laws approved by a popular vote of the people.

While the protections currently apply to all statutory measures that win voter approval by a simple majority, Rep. J.D. Mesnard said he’s drafting legislation that would require a ballot measure be approved by two-thirds of voters for Proposition 105 protections to attach – meaning the protections would apply to fewer voter-approved measures.

Statutory measures that receive less than the threshold, but more than a majority, would still go into effect, but could be amended or repealed by the Legislature.
