From a joint press release from both the House and Senate Democrats -
Legislative Democrats to hold budget hearing in Phoenix
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX (Jan. 26, 2009) – Legislative Democrats invite members of the public to a budget hearing in Phoenix, the second of five hearings that will be held statewide.
Members of the House and Senate Appropriations committees will be in attendance to hear citizens’ concerns of the deep cuts in the state’s budget.
When: Thursday, Jan. 29, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Where: Grace Lutheran Church, 1124 N. 3rd St., Phoenix, AZ 85004
Legislative Democrats will also hold hearings in Yuma on Feb. 2, 7 to 9 p.m. at Arizona Western College, 2020 S. Ave. 8E, Yuma, Ariz., in the College Community Center, in Tucson on Feb. 4 (location to be announced) and in Flagstaff on Feb. 9 (location to be announced).
I'll try to attend the Phoenix meeting (schedule permitting) but urge everyone who is concerned about the draconian budget cuts proposed by the Republicans in the lege to attend the meeting closest to you. It is vital for all of us to let our legislators know that sacrificing the future of Arizona on the altar of blind ideology is *not* an option.
