Impeachment is a power reserved to voters that allows voters, upon request, to demand the removal of an elected official. A dismissal can be filed against any public official for any reason. The recall cannot be filed until after the elected official has been in office during his first term for at least six months. This six-month limit does not apply to state legislators.
For state legislators, a motion for revocation can begin five days after the start of their first legislative session after their election. For other elected officials, there is no six-month limit for subsequent terms. The records, books and files of all public service corporations, state banks, construction and loan associations, trust companies, insurance and guarantees companies shall be responsible at all times and shall be subject to all visiting and inspection powers of the state, notwithstanding the immunities and privileges guaranteed in The declaration of rights of this Constitution to the persons, inhabitants and citizens of this State. The legislature may expand the powers and expand the functions of the corporate commission, and may prescribe rules and regulations to govern proceedings initiated by and before it; but, until such rules and regulations are established by law, the commission may issue rules and regulations governing such regulations and regulations procedures.
The Court also finds that the applicable statutes are consistent with Arizona's constitutional provisions governing impeachment. Official petitions for state initiatives, referendums and revocations will be issued in person at the Office of the Secretary of State once the serial number request is received. Representatives of the government of this state will preserve, protect and improve the role of English as the official language of the government of Arizona. The total length of the Arizona Constitution is approximately 49,000 words shorter than many other constitutions, but even closer to the length of a book than to an accessible edition.
The powers and duties of the Secretary of State, the State Treasurer, the Attorney General and the Superintendent of Public Instruction shall be those prescribed by law. The jurisdiction, powers and duties of courts lower than the higher court and of the courts of justice, and the mandates of the judges of such courts and justices of the peace shall be those established by law. Arizona's constitutional drafters and Western state populists, who first advocated the adoption of modern mechanisms of direct democracy, saw them as a means of depriving the legislature of policy-making authority, combating the widespread influence of corporate interests in capture of state and local officials. The Arizona Supreme Court allowed the election after dismissing District 18 voter Franklin Ross's objection to the procedures used to obtain the signatures needed for impeachment.
The governor shall have the power to grant pardons, commutations and pardons, after conviction, for all crimes, except treason and cases of dismissal, under the conditions and with the restrictions and limitations provided by law. The governor's power of veto shall not extend to an initiative measure approved by a majority of the votes cast on it or to a referendum measure decided by a majority of the votes cast on it. In addition to the above-mentioned limited power to contract debts, the state may borrow money to repel the invasion, suppress the insurrection, or defend the state in time of war; but the money thus collected will be used exclusively for the purpose for which the loan was authorized or for the repayment of the debt. Thus created.
Public debts, as demonstrated by the bonds of Arizona, its counties, municipalities, or other subdivisions, will also be exempt from taxes. Irrigation, energy, electricity, agricultural improvement, drainage and flood control districts, and tax-collecting public improvement districts, now or in the future organized in accordance with the law, will be political subdivisions of the state. There will be a non-partisan commission on appellate court appointments that will be composed of the chief justice, who will be president, five members of lawyers, who will be nominated by the board of governors of the Arizona State Bar Association and appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate in the manner prescribed by law, and ten members other than attorneys who shall be appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the Senate in the manner prescribed by law. .
