The Invest in Arizona coalition seeking to let voters decide the fate of a massive tax-cut package approved by Republican lawmakers this year has ramped up hiring of paid circulators to gather signatures ahead of a deadline that is less than two weeks away.  

In order to force a public vote in 2022 on three new laws lauded by Gov. Doug Ducey as “the single largest tax cut in Arizona history” from taking effect, the campaign must collect at least 118,823 valid signatures by Sept. 28. 

The coalition has three signature gathering firms with paid employees out in the field boosting their volunteer efforts: Fieldworks, a Washington-D.C. based group; Sand Hill Associates, a South Dakota company; and Phoenix-based La Machine Consulting, according to the Arizona Secretary of State’s database of paid circulators. 

The bulk of the paid signature-gatherers are contracted with Fieldworks, the records show.
