Over the last several years, Arizona has been forced to cut budgets. There have been deep cuts to crucial programs, including those that protect and educate our children. We've also failed to invest in the infrastructure needed to support economic development.
We face continuing budget difficulties. At the same time, our state gives away billions in potential revenue to corporations and special interests in the form of tax credits and deductions. Some of these are effective incentives, but others do nothing to help grow our economy and create high-quality jobs. We need to carefully evaluate all of these revenue reductions.
As our economy recovers, it is time to make decisions that support the vision we all have for Arizona – a place we choose to raise our families and a state we’re proud to call our home.
