The Arizona Legislature is trying to fast track a permanent tax cut that will cost the state budget $120 million and another $14 million from Prop 301 revenues, a direct cut to teacher pay. The Senate is planning a vote on Monday for Senate Bill (SB) 1392, a permanent tax cut for digital goods and services. The House version of this bill (HB 2479) has already passed.
CALL NOW: Senator Karen Fann: (602) 926-5874; Find your Senator: azleg.gov; At a time when we are facing a severe teacher shortage crisis, we should be investing in public education, not cutting their salaries. Contact your senator today to stop SB1392! If the Senate version passes, then it goes immediately to Governor Doug Ducey’s desk. Be ready to write and call the governor. firstname.lastname@example.org / 602.542.4331

In case you haven’t heard, there will be a march on Prescott Courthouse Square at 1:00 TOMORROW to promote reasonable gun laws, AND to put a dent, at least, in the terrible massacre of our children. We will meet at the corner of Montezuma and Gurley. We have a 2:00 meeting so will only march about a half hour but would love to have a crowd for this important issue. Bring a sign if you can—if not, come anyway!
