In the early hours of Saturday, March 7, the Arizona legislature passed the budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2015. While the budget balances revenues and expenditures for one year, it lacks a greater vision for Arizona’s children and families and future. The budget backtracks on prevention strategies, puts more children at risk for child neglect, grows prisons while shrinking resources for higher education, and permanently reduces per student operational funding in public schools – both district and charter. 

CAA has done the analysis. It’s a bad budget for Arizona.  Read, weep, share and contact Governor Ducey with your thoughts.
