·       Attorney General Tom Horne Authored The Principal Friend Of Court Brief in today's victory by Michigan upholding state bans on racial preferences in college admissions, state contracts, and state employment. Horne stated: "Arizona, like Michigan and other states, has a voter approved ban on racial preferences in college admissions, state contracts, and state employment. The sixth circuit declared that ban unconstitutional, which is ironic, because the constitution guarantees that all individuals are entitled to equal protection of the law. Our office prepared the principal friend of court brief, joined in by other states, in the appeal to the US Supreme Court. Today, the Supreme Court ruled 6-2 in our favor. This upholds the fundamental American principle, that we are all individuals, and that what counts is our knowledge and character, and not what race we happened to be born into. It is gratifying that the Arizona Attorney General's office played a major role in this victory."  See  Brief

·       The JLBC Staff Reports Monthly To The Legislature on the status of General Fund revenue collections and other fiscal issues. This report can be found on the following link: www.azleg.gov/jlbc.htm. Among the key points of the document:

1.     March General Fund revenues increased by 19.9% from March 2013, due to growth in Individual Income Tax collections. It is difficult to draw conclusions about this result, as the timing of taxpayer filing and return processing can cause significant fluctuations in collections in any given week. The overall trend of Individual Income Tax collections will remain uncertain until at least the middle of May.

2.     In terms of the states’ other main revenue categories, Sales and Corporate Income taxes showed increases over the prior year, with those revenues categories coming in at $13.6 million and $11.5 million above the budget forecast, respectively.

3.     Sales Tax collections of $326.0 million were 9.3% above March 2013 and $13.6 million above the forecast for the month. For the first 9 months of the fiscal year, sales tax collections are 5.9% above the prior year and are $2.5 million above the January forecast.

4.     Corporate Income Tax net collections were $78.4 million in March, which is $3.0 million greater than March of the prior year. Year-to-date, collections are down (10.6)% compared to the prior year, and are $9.4 million above the January forecast.

5.     Overall March General Fund collections were $55.6 million above the January forecast. Year-to-date, overall collections are $39.0 million above the January forecast.

The Finance Advisory Committee (FAC) met on April 10, 2014 to update its revenue forecast.   The FAC is a 15-member panel of private and public section economists. The FAC heard presentations on General Fund Revenue collections, the U.S. economy, and state cash flows. During the meeting, FAC panelists generally outlined a slowly improving economy, with moderate growth predicted for the next several years.  - Sen John McComish , Rep Bob Robson and Rep Jeff Dial.
