Foes of signature bill want to delay enforcement

Arizona voters may get the last word on whether they want to ban paying petition circulators on a per-name basis.

Foes of HB 2404, signed last week by Gov. Doug Ducey, submitted paperwork Thursday to the secretary of state’s office, which will permit them to start gathering signatures to refer the measure to the 2018 ballot. They have until 90 days after the session ends — whenever that finally happens — to gather at least 75,321 valid signatures.

One thing working in their favor is that because the law they oppose is not yet in effect, they can hire paid circulators and pay them according to the number of signatures they gather.
