STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Rep. Richard Andrade, D-Phoenix (District 29), released the following statement regarding the Arizona Supreme Court's decision to deny the challenge to Proposition 206:
"I support the Arizona Supreme Court Justices' unanimous decision to reject the attempt to overturn Proposition 206, which requires an increase in the minimum wage. Voter-approved citizen initiatives are a vital part of a responsive, community-driven government. This decision supports the will of the people and the well-being of Arizona families.
"I would like to also recognize the work of Living United for Change in Arizona (LUCHA). This group of dedicated community members brought urgency to this issue by creating a movement in Arizona. Their efforts have made the importance of an increased minimum wage well-known in this state. This is a victory for Arizona families."
