Time to act now Arizona: the 5 immigration bills are not dead until Monday! - Three Sonorans

Time to act now Arizona: the 5 immigration bills are not dead until Monday! - Three Sonorans

John Loredo, former House Minority Leader in Arizona, has informed me that the 5 anti-immigrant bills voted down today are not completely dead yet.

Russell Pearce can still change the vote on the bills to pass them, by Monday.
Every bill can be reconsidered one time by any member who voted on the prevailing side. The key to killing these bills is to reconsider it immediately and vote no on the motion. Because the bills weren’t reconsidered, they are technically still alive.

The deadline to reconsider is one session day after the vote. Pearce now has 3 days to whip up his votes, which you can bet is already happening.

The 5 immigration bills have been voted down BUT THEY ARE NOT DEAD.
