Arizona Legislature Week Thirteen Update 4-9-2023

Arizona Legislature – Week Twelve Update, 4-1-2023


The Governor or Ringmaster or Czar has already taken over the Center Ring.  Read the attachment and you’ll understand.

For a second, let’s talk about why none of the Democrat Bills are ever written about.  Out of the 1,630 total Bills introduced into both Chambers, only about 645 Bills have been introduced by the Democrats (370 in the House and 275 in the Senate).  Only a handful were ever had a First Read and placed into Committees, and only a portion of those ever made it to a 2nd Read.

I have listed in Blue on the attached Legislative Update, only the Democrat Bills I thought were egregious enough to mention, i.e. pro-abortion Bills, anti-Election Bills and a couple on state sovereignty.  To that end, none of the Dem Bills made it to a Hearing, so it was not necessary to list Bills that were not moving.

With that in mind, take a look at what has happened this past week in the Legislature and at the Czar’s office.


The Czar continues to veto all Bills of interest.  If there is a Republican sponsor and no bipartisan support for the Bill, consider the Bill dead

The Czar or Ringmaster of this circus has vetoed SB1600.  She said she was going to veto it and she kept her promise.  Wait until you see the letter that was sent to the Senate with her lame excuse for vetoing this Bill.

Up to this posting date (4/8), the Czar has vetoed 37 Bills.  She is on target to reaching Governor Napolitano who set a record in 2005 for vetoing 58 Bills.  Presently, the Czar is in 2nd Place already surpassing Governor Brewer, who vetoed 29.


There has been over 99 Bills transmitted to the Czar’s office, with a whopping 37 this past week!  Some of them are listed below as having been vetoed or signed, but most remain on her desk awaiting a decision.


This past week along THE Governor vetoed 17 Bills, with 8 Bills in one day.  They are listed below:

The Czar or Ringmaster has been strategically working to destroy the great State of Arizona since January.  This circus performance has brought her a lot of media attention, which by most intelligent people would not necessarily want.  But this Ringmaster is different.  She l-o-v-e-s the limelight and it’s gaining her tons of popularity…negative, that is.  Hitler was like that too…

Anyway, read the attachment, it fits her to a T.  THE GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH 040723 FINAL
