State Senator Jack Harper from Arizona wants to ask voters to let lawmakers limit how much Arizona juries can award to accident and malpractice victims. “This is probably the only year we will have a legislative makeup that will allow the measure to go to the ballot,” said Harper.
Okay. But if this is the only year you can get it through, doesn’t that underscore it is a terrible idea? A great selling point for politics. Less so for doing the right thing.
Arizona voters defeated a similar ballot issue in 1986.
