We have two important pro taxpayer bills being held in the House Rules Committee:
HB2026 (Rep. Ugenti) Paycheck Protection & HB2330 (Rep. Montenegro) Transparency in Government Union Negotiations
The Chair of the Rules Committee is Rep. Bob Robson. In last year’s legislative session Robson killed two pro taxpayer bills, by never giving them a hearing.
HB2330 & HB2026 meet Arizona Constitutional requirements and should be sent to the House floor for a vote, not held to die in Committee.
In the last session we scored a stunning victory. Versions of Consolidated Elections had been put forward and defeated in the AZ legislature for over 10 years.
Last session Rep. Ugenti sponsored HB2826, Consolidated Elections, and fought tooth and nail for this bill throughout the entire session. The activist community joined Rep. Ugenti in this battle and responded with hundreds, perhaps over 1,000, phone calls and emails to resistant legislators. In the end we prevailed.
It will take this same effort to get further union reform bills passed as we, unfortunately, still have Republican government union supporting legislative members.
We need HB2330 & HB2026 to continue the effort to level the playing field for the overburdened taxpayer.
It appears that Rep.Robson has chosen to be on the side of the government unions.
It is up to us to stand up for the hardworking Arizona taxpayer.
PLEASE email and/ or call Rep. Robson, everyday if possible, and tell him that the taxpayers want HB2330 & HB2026 sent out of his Rules Committee immediately.
We need to get this done as quickly as possible.
Rep. Bob Robson: firstname.lastname@example.org 602-926-5549
If Robson is opposed to these bills, he can cast his vote on the House floor along with all of the other State Representatives.
This is a democracy, not a dictatorship.
Thank you again!
