We posted before the election on the AFL-CIO-backed Proposition 201, which would have imposed a 10-year warranty on new Arizona homes and much broadened homebuyers' right to sue builders over dissatisfaction with their purchases. The state's voters didn't think much of the measure, defeating it by a four-to-one margin. Four years ago Colorado voters lopsidedly defeated a bill to expand construction-defect litigation in that state.
