Arizona: Criticism of Republican bill to change the recall

This article is somewhat confusing. It complains about a bill in Arizona to change the recall (the bill is actually HCR2020, not HB 2020). The changes proposed seem to be trying to rejigger signature requirements to have petitions signed only by people who voted in the last election, and limit the officers of a recall committee to people who live in the district. However, the article claims that the bill will increase the signature requirement for petitions (it erroneously claims that Arizona has a 10% turnout signature requirement), which does not appear to be the case.
