2019 Session Wrap
We began the legislative session with a watchful eye on 109 bills affecting our democracy (woah!) and as session slowly-but-surely moved on, our list dwindled down to 12 consequential pieces of legislation - both good and bad that would have a lasting impact on Arizona’s democracy. Below you’ll find our analysis of those bills and what their fate was.
After years of APS using its monopoly profits to exert undue influence on policymakers, we have seen the results: rate increases for APS customers, a lack of investment in solar and other renewable energy across the state, and a loss of confidence that our government truly represents the people of Arizona.

This legislative session has been no walk in the park, but amidst all the bad bills, we’ve taken the opportunity to give attention to some of the pro-democracy reforms that many legislators have been pushing since the VERY START of session in our “Pro-Democracy Roll Call”. While none of these reforms are still alive in the legislative process this year, they represent a positive path forward for a democracy where all of our voices are heard – and we won’t give up the fight.
