BUDGET: Next up is the State Budget. This is very important as it determines the character of our state and its values. Begin to consider what YOUR priorities are for the budget. Arizona House Democrats held a town hall presenting Democratic priorities this weekend. Arizona schools are still $800 million behind 2008 funding levels — time to get that straight!
Stay tuned for upcoming action on the budget.
