Greg Ensell, Vice President of Government Relations
Today is the 88th day of session and there are hopes that the legislative session will end before the end of April, but may easily change. The major remaining issues are water and the Governor's school safety proposal which was released just yesterday.
As budget work continues, it's too soon to know whether AzHHA's key issues will be included in the final budget. So far the legislature has reportedly sent its "budget framework" to the Governor which is the first step in the negotiation process. Stay tuned for future budget updates.
