Election Results To Be Certified, Ducey To Sign Proclamation

Brent Brooks @brentbrooks

Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan and Gov. Doug Ducey are set to officially certify the results of a special election on school funding and police and fire pension measures.

Thursday's formal canvass of the election results will certify victories for propositions 123 and 124.

Proposition 123 will boost funding for K-12 schools in large part by tapping the state land trust to help add $3.5 billion in new spending over 10 years. It narrowly passed with less than 51 percent of the vote.

Proposition 124 lowered cost-of-living adjustments for police and fire pensions and will help the underfunded pension plan become solvent over the coming 20 years. It passed with more than 70 percent of the vote.
