Arizona Bill Pushes Back Against Tom Steyer-led Ballot Question

Lawmakers in Arizona gave their approval in a senate committee Wednesday to a bill signaling strong opposition to a possible November ballot initiative that would mandate 50 percent of the state’s energy production come from renewable sources by 2030.

Tom Steyer, the former California hedge fund billionaire turned political activist who is also running commercials nationwide urging an impeachment of President Trump, is one of the potential initiative’s biggest proponents.

The bill would not directly override the ballot measure if it is passed by voters, but “would spell out that any violation of the constitutional provision would be only a civil violation,” according to the Arizona Capitol Times. Additionally, the bill set a maximum one-time fine on energy companies who might be out of compliance at $5,000.
