Farm Bureau Supports a ” NO ” Vote on Quality Jobs and Education Act
Arizona does not need more budgeting by the ballot box, nor do we need to further hamstring our legislature. We will hold them accountable at the ballot box. Our governor and legislature are constitutionally required to balance the budget. Every permanent earmark makes that job harder.
AZFB supported the temporary [emphasis on "temporary"] sales tax as an emergency measure, but the time for the sales tax increase has passed and it is time for the legislature to continue to do the things necessary to get our state’s fiscal house in order. The twelve earmarks are more like the twelve days of Christmas…year after year after year.
