Excerpt: "Balance the state budget in an open process and on time."
  • Arizona Economy
Excerpt: "Create a state empowerment zone like the federal government has done, to utilize tax credits for employers to hire and train workers in fields that have a high demand;"
  • K-12 Education & Funding
Excerpt: "Educating our state’s children in the essential subjects of reading, writing, science, math and vocational classes is important to Arizona’s economy."
  • University Funding & Affordability
Excerpt: "Arizona’s universities are critical to developing our state’s economic future and in training the future workforce. By funding the universities at an acceptable level, students can afford to pay a reasonable tuition in order to get a good college education."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "The Arizona Legislature has been chipping away at the funding for HCG and has been starving this important health insurance program. At a time when health insurance premiums are becoming unaffordable, programs like HCG and Kids Care, are needed to help insure our state’s children and small businesses in order to have healthy students and healthy workers."
