The Tucson Metro Chamber congratulated Gov. Doug  Ducey and the state legislature for prioritizing school funding and increasing teachers' remuneration. 

This long-required reform in the Arizona budget has finally been implemented. The Chamber says it will definitely prove to be fruitful for the Arizona economy.

A strong education system is the cornerstone for ensuring Arizona’s future workforce has the skills to meet the needs of the businesses and job creators.

The Chamber commended Ducey for advancing the 20X2020 Plan. As representatives of the business community, the Chamber agrees that a funding increase must be included in the base formula moving forward. 

Chamber officials look forward to working with Ducey and the legislature on details to ensure a plan meets the needs of the member businesses, as well as Arizona’s education system.
