Feb. 2011 Legislative Update

The legislative session started on January 10th.  Since then there has been a whirlwind of activity at the State Capitol.   We have been discussing and voting on bills in committees, updating legislators on the budget situation, and working on details of legislation that will increase jobs in Arizona.  In my new leadership position as Majority Whip, I am responsible for making sure we have enough votes for important legislation, like the bill that will balance our state budget.  I  enjoy mentoring the new legislators and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them better.
This legislative session, I have introduced legislation that will save our state between $20-$100 Million, legislation that will pay down our state debt and prevent our state from spending more than it has coming in, and legislation that provides more educational choice for students and their parents.
I have enjoyed speaking to groups throughout our community and I would love to speak to your group or have you come down to the State Capitol for a tour.  In fact, I just had a wonderful group of students from Peoria High School come down to the Capitol for a tour.
As always, please contact me if you have any comments or questions at 602-926-5413.    I’d love to hear from you.
