The Supreme Court rejected an appeal by Secretary of State Ken Bennett who fought to thwart the will of over 290,000 voters who support the Quality Education and Jobs Citizen’s Initiative–Proposition 204. In July, Bennett rejected the record-number of petition signatures filed by the campaign on a technicality. Superior Court Judge Robert Oberbillig–in a speedy, common-sense decision–rejected Bennet’s argument that the initiative had failed to comply with Constitutional requirements. Bennett’s office appealed to the Supreme Court, which yesterday, affirmed the Constitutional right of Arizona voters to the initiative process.
