With no clear resolution ahead in the battle between the governor and Republican legislators, budget talks could take a turn toward empowering the minority party.

Republicans aren’t holding back on some of their top priorities, though. Empowerment Scholarship Accounts are back again, and the debate is every bit as fiery as you’d expect.

And we’ll have an update on where talks around protections for vulnerable adults are at this point in the legislative session.

    What happened to the repeal of the $35.00 tax increase called a vehicle tax??

  2. Until that quasi-legal and regressive $32 Vehicle License Tax increase is repealed, and, the DPS & ADOT have a sustainable source of funding, our Legislature cannot pass a proper Budget.

    SB1001 was unanimously passed out of the Senate on 2-11-19, now it needs to be assigned in the House.

    Why the delay you write Art Petersen? …..Ask the AZ House Speaker why he hasn’t assigned SB1001 to any Committees yet?

    Also follow progress of the $32 VLT Repeal bill SB1001 (with some humor,) at “$32-Skiddo” on Fb.
