Washington, DC — Heritage Action for America, a national conservative grassroots organization, released a statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson praising Arizona Governor Doug Ducey for signing into law HB 2569, to remove the influence of corporate and private money on state election boards or officials:
Gov. Doug Ducey stood up for all Arizonans by taking swift action and signing this historic election integrity law. HB 2569 is another in a series of strong measures Arizona lawmakers have taken to protect election integrity and keep the influence of private money out of Arizona’s election system operations. Arizonans deserve an election process free from outside influence and partisan funding — by banning corporate and private funding for election operations, this law will safeguard that system.
State Rep. Jake Hoffman and the grassroots activists of Arizona worked hard to advance HB 2569 and other common-sense legislation to ensure Arizona’s elections are fair and transparent. As Arizona legislators continue working to pass further election integrity legislation, they should do so with the knowledge that they are supported by the people of Arizona.
Background: Heritage Action has invested an initial $10 million into a campaign to strengthen election laws across eight states, including Arizona. Heritage Action Sentinels and activists have worked to advance election laws like HB 2054, HB 2569, HCR2023, and other resolutions. Last month HB 2054 was signed into law, a bill inspired by a Heritage Action Sentinel.
