“In order to ensure that taxpayer money does not directly or indirectly support international acts of terrorism, the State of Arizona and its cities, counties and other political subdivisions shall not contract with or invest in any individuals, partnerships, corporations or other legal entities invested in or doing business with countries designated by the US State Department, as of January 1, 2015, as state sponsors of terrorism.

Existing contracts and/or investments must not be renewed, and must be cancelled or divested at the earliest prudent opportunity. Under no circumstance shall such contracts and/or investments be in force past December 31, 2018.”

Prohibited countries will be added to the list when designated by the US State Department as a state sponsor of terrorism. Countries can be removed from the prohibition list only upon their reclassification by the US State Department, and an affirmative majority vote of the State House and State Senate and the signature of the Governor, or by the overriding of the Governor’s veto by the State House and State Senate by a 2/3rds vote.

Assigned to a tiny Lutheran congregation in Glendale, Arizona in 1978, Walt Kallestad quickly learned humility and the value of strong communications: Within the first few months, the congregation had dropped by 50 percent, and the young idealist was faced with the challenge of rebuilding constituency or finding a new profession. The challenge has obviously been met. Today, under Walt's direction, Community Church of Joy supports thousands of participants. Walt is a graduate of Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, and Luther-Northwestern Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota, and received his doctorate at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. He spends his leisure time with Mary, his wife and best friend, their grown children and grandchildren, pursuing interests in writing, music and golf.
