Arizona Gov. Ducey Signs 27 Bills Before Deadline

With a Monday night deadline, Gov. Doug Ducey signed several and vetoed a few of the remaining bills on his desk. 

The governor signed 27 bills into law. 

Among the most controversial, and most likely to face a lawsuit, is a law limiting cities to holding elections for voter approved tax hikes during November general elections during even-numbered years.

The State Court of Appeals struck down a similar measure in 2012 for candidate elections finding the law overreaching.

Struggling Arizonans will have an added year of help under the restored Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program. Ducey extended it back to two years, but added tighter restrictions for those seeking aid.

Corporations and investors will enjoy expanded tax credits for research and development, as well as a 30 percent tax credit for providing “angel investments” into small companies.
