Let’s welcome robust, uncomfortable, contentious discussion (access required)

The state of Arizona is experiencing a paradigm shift. We spent the last 30 years taking as much water off the Colorado River as possible to keep it away from California.

Money for dental care for pregnant women missing from budget

Unfortunately, the funding to support SB1088 is missing from initial budget proposals.

This is why I encourage the legislature to include funding for SB1088 in the final budget.
