“My thanks goes out to Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann, Senate Appropriations Chairman David Gowan, and thier colleagues for working together to pass this historic budget.  This balanced and fiscally responsible plan is a win for all Arizonans — it delivers unprecedented tax relief to working families and small businesses, it pays down state debt, and it continues to invest in our schools and infrastructure so we can keep Arizona competitive.  I look forward to signing this budget once the Arizona House of Representatives votes and it reaches my desk.”
