PHOENIX (AP) - A Maricopa County Superior Court judge in Phoenix has scheduled an initial hearing Monday in a lawsuit challenging the official voter publicity's description for state's November ballot.
The lawsuit filed by the Arizona Early Childhood Development and Health Board contends that an analysis approved by a joint House-Senate committee is slanted against the program.
The board runs the First Things First program launched by voter approval of a 2006 initiative on services for young children. The Legislature last spring voted to repeal the program and use its tobacco-tax funding to help balance the state budget.
