Arizona Lawmakers Agree to Put on Ballot a Proposed Ban on Affirmative-Action Preferences: Chronicle of Higher Ed


Arizona is set to become the first state in which a proposed ban on affirmative-action preferences will be put on the ballot by the legislature, rather than through petitions submitted by voters.

The Arizona Senate today passed a measure – approved by the state’s House of Representatives a week ago – calling for a proposed ban on the use of affirmative-action preferences by public colleges and other state agencies, to go before voters next year. Under the state’s Constitution, referenda approved by the Arizona Legislature go on the ballot without the governor’s approval.
