Arizona: Controversial Election Bill tightens recall procedures
A controversial election bill which is awaiting the Governor's signature (or veto), has provisions that tightens recall procedures. From what I saw, the language demands a strict construction of existing law, which would seem to be a reaction to the 2011 Arizona Supreme Court decision allowing the State Senate President Russell Pierce recall to go forward. The Court held that recalls should be judge by a substantial compliance standard.
