A Bad Budget for Arizona

girl cryingIn the early hours of Saturday, March 7, the Arizona legislature passed the budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2015. While the budget balances revenues and expenditures for one year, it lacks a greater vision for Arizona’s children and families and future. The budget backtracks on prevention strategies, puts more children at risk for child neglect, grows prisons while shrinking resources for higher education, and permanently reduces per student operational funding in public schools – both district and charter.

CAA has done the analysis. It’s a bad budget for Arizona. Read, weep, share and contact Governor Ducey with your thoughts.

    Governor Ducey, please veto this budget. Our AZ kids and students really got the shaft. I know the debt is bad but our kids-especially poor ones from broken families or in CPS ate really are on their own. This feels like a movie or bad dream-this budget will have devastating results in the future. It just makes me feel like we are a corporation not a state.
