ICYMI: Statement From Arizona Chamber CEO Glenn Hamer On Gov. Ducey's FY 19 Budget

January 12, 2018

Glenn Hamer, President and CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, released the following statement regarding the rollout of Gov. Doug Ducey’s fiscal year 2019 executive budget:

“The Executive budget for fiscal year 2019 presented today is extremely encouraging. Directing $284 million above and beyond inflation funding for education is a major investment in our K-12 system. Gov. Ducey made clear during his State of the State address that education would be a priority, and he’s delivered. This, combined, with his plan to settle the lawsuit over capital funding is another example that this governor is a problem-solver and a doer.”
