By Phil Riske | Senior Reporter/Writer
Bills pertaining to voting rights and attempts to weaken if not kill the Prop 208 tax on higher-income residents have dominated the news at the Arizona Capitol. When the session ends late spring (or early summer), only a small percentage of the measures will be enacted into law. A sizeable number were DOA and others — some of them nutty measures — grow mold in the desk drawers of the Senate president and Speaker of the House.
Following are examples of measures ignored by leadership. We’ve not listed the sponsors so as not to get them laughed out of the Capitol.
