The Gilbert Chamber of Commerce recently reported on the Arizona state budget and its unintended consequences for District 12 and its compliances.
After its Good Government Breakfast for District 12 legislators, the Chamber noted in a statement, “It was clear that we won’t have an answer for several weeks on state budget discussions – small group committees are reviewing differences between the governor’s recommended budget, legislative priorities, and dollars available prior to the full House and Senate reviews. It appears the jury is out on whether this process will help come to consensus in a timely manner.”
The Chamber explained that individuals who support minimum wage increases “may not see additional money available to increase education spending as the surplus is quickly getting gobbled up with increased pricing for state bids.”
Additionally, many bills have been talked about that would address ADA compliance and “’drive-bylawsuits.” These bills would provide opportunities for compliance “without the threat of a lawsuit.”
The Chamber is asking for support from all who are interested in working to attain compliance, making contact with legislators and asking for support on SB 1198.”
