Arizona Speaker of the House J.D. Mesnard proposed and later withdrew an amendment to Senate Bill 1156 in the final days of the legislative session that would require at least 50 percent of inflation monies to be used by local education agencies to increase teacher salaries. Education advocates said the amendment would violate Prop. 301 and the intent of the settlement agreement in Prop. 123.
