Voters in Cave Creek, Ariz., thought they had a deal when they approved school bonds for new buildings. But a few years later, the school district tried to spend the money on something else. Goldwater challenged the move as a violation of the contracts clause and a judge agreed. Arizona now joins four other states in recognizing bond elections create contracts between governments and voters.
