Changes to 'Resign to Run' law set for Arizona vote

PHOENIX -- The Arizona House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on a bill making it easier for elected officials to launch campaigns for another office without triggering the state's "Resign to Run" law.

Current law requires officials not in the last year of their term to resign their seat once they make a formal announcement that they're running or they file official paperwork with the Secretary of State. Republican Rep. John Kavanagh's bill will end what he calls the ``charade'' of politicians essentially lying to the public about only exploring a run for another office when everyone knows they're running.

Kavanagh's bill would redefine official candidacy to only include the formal paperwork filing.

The House is set to vote Monday afternoon. It would then go to the Senate for action.
