PHOENIX (AP) - The House has delayed action on a measure to create the office of lieutenant governor.

Rep. J.D. Mesnard of Chandler sponsored the proposal in conjunction with a voter referral. The Republican lawmaker’s proposal would merge the position of lieutenant governor with the director of the Arizona Department of Administration.

Legislative analysts say Arizona is one of five states without the position. Mesnard sponsored two similar proposals last session that died in the Senate.

Voters failed to approve similar propositions to create the office in 1994 and 2010.

The House delayed action on House Bill 2252 Thursday afternoon.
