SB1516 is nothing short of a pure deregulation of political committees in Arizona. Under the false pretenses of streamlining our system, this proposal abdicates nearly all responsibility for regulating political committees. If you think dark money rules our current system now, buckle up because it’s about to get a whole lot darker.
Springtime renewal is on everyone’s minds with the first day of spring taking place March 20 and Easter fast approaching.
