(Washington, D.C.) – The office of Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan is currently evaluating a petition submitted by opponents of Arizona’s Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) program. The petition calls for a 2018 referendum to block the expansion of this educational opportunity initiative, which – if allowed to be implemented – would greatly benefit the state’s Hispanic community. If the Secretary of State rules that a sufficient number of valid signatures has been submitted, Arizona voters would vote next year on whether to allow the ESA expansion to go into effect.
