AZ Legislature puts 7 measures on Nov. 6 ballot

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona voters will decide seven proposals that the Legislature put on the November ballot.

One of the measures would increase the amount of business equipment that's exempt from the state property tax.

Another would declare that the state has sovereignty over the air, water and other natural resources within its boundaries.

The Arizona Republic reports that Lawmakers sent these questions, along with three others, to the Nov. 6 ballot.

These measures join two others lawmakers referred last year.

All of them are amendments to the state Constitution and therefore require voter approval.

At least several of the 18 citizen initiatives being circulated are likely to qualify for the ballot.

July 5 is the deadline for initiative backers to file their petitions with the Arizona secretary of state.
