Arizona House Democrats held a listening tour over the past month in which they asked for constituent input and developed these 5 priorities to include in their FY2020 budget.
- P-20 (Preschool through College) Public Education Funding
- Rural and Urban Infrastructure Investments – Roads & Jobs
- Affordable Housing and Homelessness Services
- Human Services Funding
- Rainy Day Fund Deposit
Have a say in what’s in the budget. Contact your senator, representatives, and governor. Contact them four ways: call, email, resistbot and use social media (most lawmakers have a Twitter presence).
Traditionally budget negotiations happen within a fog of secrecy. Asking for constituent input is a crucial step in making sure the state’s budget represents the values of Arizonans. While you’re calling your elected officials ask them about their plans to hold a budget town hall.
