Save Our Schools Arizona claims to have collected enough signatures to temporarily halt the expansion of the state’s Empowerment Scholarship Account program.
According to a press release sent Monday morning, SOS Arizona collected more than 100,000 signatures in the last three months to refer Senate Bill 1431 to the 2018 November general election ballot. The public-education advocacy group needs about 75,000 valid signatures to ultimately be successful.
A school bus rented from a private company will deliver the SOS Arizona petitions to the Arizona Secretary of State on Tuesday, according to the group’s press release, representatives will have a “precise final count” following the drop-off.
