AZ Senate President Says Education, Transportation And Prison Reform Priorities

Published: Tuesday, January 7, 2020 - 6:05pm

The Arizona Legislature will kick off a new session on Monday. Senate President Karen Fann says education, transportation and prison reform will be priorities in the budget. 

"Our number one job and responsibility is get the budget done," she said. "We don’t have to do any other bills. There’s nothing in the constitution that says we have to pass any other laws."

Fann also said the sooner lawmakers can wrap up the session, the better because it’s an election year. She says emotions are high and they could escalate the longer lawmakers remain in session.
