Judge rules Arizona legislators wrote misleading blurb for voters

By Howard Fischer | Capitol Media Services via Arizona Daily Star

A judge ordered lawmakers Monday to provide voters with more information on their proposed changes to the operations of the Citizens Clean Elections Commission.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury said the Republican-dominated Legislative Council left voters in the dark by failing to adequately explain how a ballot measure would strip away some rule-making authority of the commission.

That change would require the commission to have its rules reviewed — and potentially vetoed — by the Governor’s Regulatory Review Council, made up of gubernatorial appointees, or by the attorney general, who is an elected partisan official.
