·       Former Dem Phoenix Mayor Terry Goddard hosted a Porch Party Fundraiser this week to Stop Dark Money  influence in Arizona.  Briefs remembers when Goddard was mayor.  The “Dark Money” Republicans would do well to pay attention. He means business.

 

·       LD27 PC Art Olivas has been trying to get a walking list of his precinct for over three weeks now.  For heaven sakes, can’t someone at the head shed (AZGOP HQ) get him a walking list???  He is getting more and more frustrated by the day… and his e-mails show it.

 

·       And Speaking Of The AZGOP, no one has responded to reader questions as to who elected or appointed the “District Caucus Chairmen” during the Jan 24 AZGOP Statutory meeting. A more fitting name probably would have been “Caucus Facilitator” as they were appointed by AZGOP to facilitate the Caucus meetings.  Jez, a simply answer in late January would have stopped a lot of questions and disgruntle commentary.

 

·       Pima County GOP Chairman Bill Beard recommends Tucson Republicans provide input to the City Charter proposals at 5 pm., March 10 at the El Pueblo Neighborhood Center, and at 5 pm., March 12 at Morris K Udall Regional Center.

 

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: As chairman of the Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific, I convened a hearing entitled, “The Trans-Pacific Partnership: Prospects for Greater U.S. Trade”, where we heard from policy experts as to the importance of expanding our trade ties with Asia through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).  Introductory statements on TPP and the importance of the hearing can be found here.

 

·       The Gila County Republican Committee Lincoln Dinner is scheduled at 6 pm., March 20 at the Rim Golf Club, Payson. Speakers: Congressman David Schweikert and Attorney General Mark Brnovich. Contact: 928-951-6774

 

·       LD21 Sen Debbie Lesko:  Governor’s Ducey And The Legislature's Budget Proposal focuses on putting more money in the classroom.  The proposal increases K-12 classroom funding by $160 Million and reduces K-12 non-classroom funding by $113.5 Million, for a net increase in education funding. Unfortunately, communications from some of the school superintendents focus only on the cuts and don’t mention the proposed increases.  Telling parents about proposed cuts to non-classroom funding and then not telling the parents about the proposed increases to classroom funding is disingenuous.  Documentation from the Joint Legislative Budget Committee shows that all school districts will receive a net increase in education funding. According to the latest AZ Auditor General Report,  Arizona schools spent 53.8% of their funding in the classroom, compared to the national average of 60.9%.  I’m a Peoria School District parent.   In a recent survey, Peoria Unified School District asked parents if they prefer a 4 day school week over cutting personnel such as school bus drivers and cafeteria workers. Perhaps a better question would be …do parents prefer cutting administration costs over cutting school bus drivers and cafeteria workers?  I have a feeling the answer would be yes.  Debbie Lesko - Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee

·       A Summit to Fix Veterans Healthcare is planned at 6 pm., April 13 at Steele Indian School Park Memorial Hall.  Details:    here.

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: This week I introduced H.R. 1327, the ORDEAL Act which would put a halt to the most expensive regulation in American history: the EPA’s revised National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).  At a time when our economy is struggling to recover, this regulation is the last thing we need.  My press release on the ORDEAL Act can be read here.  I also attended two hearings this week in the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.  The hearing held by the full Foreign Affairs committee was titled, “Ukraine Under Siege”, and focused on the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, where Russian instigation has torn the nation in two.  A video of my questions to State Department Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland on the situation is available here.

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: This week the House voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security for the rest of this fiscal year.  While many have applauded this vote, I feel it has endangered our Constitution—subjugating the powers of Congress to an out-of-control executive intent on placing fiat over duly enacted legislation.  During the debate, I spoke on the floor to object to the funding measure. On Tuesday, the House passed the Senate Amendment to H.R. 240, the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, by a vote of 257-167.  The Senate Amendment to H.R. 240 makes appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the end of Fiscal Year 2015.  Standing Up for the Constitution Link

ü  the SR-71 Blackbird (the world’s fastest spy plane);

ü  a B-29 Superfortress (the WWII bomber that flew higher, farther and faster plus carried more bombs) that flew in the Tokyo Fire Bombing and Victory sorties;

ü  the world’s smallest bi-plane and jet (a James Bond “toy”);

ü  the C-54 (the Berlin Airlift’s star flown by the famous “Candy Bomber” Col. USAF (Ret.) Gail Halvorsen, a Tucson-area resident);

ü  the Boeing 737-300 airliner, the world’s most popular commercial jet as one takes off every three minutes;

·       Congressman Paul Gosar Tidbit: Route 66's longest remaining intact stretch is between Selligman, AZ and Topock, AZ, according to Gosar.

 

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: On Wednesday, the House passed H.R. 749, the Passenger Rail Reform and Investment Act of 2015, by a vote of 316-101.  While it made several important changes, H.R. 749 reauthorized appropriations for the National Railroad Passenger Corporation (Amtrak) for FY 2016-2019, continuing government involvement in an industry in which it should not be spending your tax dollars.  For this reason I voted against it.
