·       Supreme-Court-Justice-Scalia Drops-A-Bomb …The reason America’s basic freedom has endured for more than 200 years, Scalia said Friday in a speech to the Federalist Society in Morristown, N.J., is not the amendments to the Constitution but the Constitution itself. “Every tin horn dictator in the world today, every president for life, has a Bill of Rights,” said Scalia, author of the 2012 book “Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts.” “That’s not what makes us free; if it did, you would rather live in Zimbabwe. But you wouldn’t want to live in most countries in the world that have a Bill of Rights. What has made us free is our Constitution. Think of the word ‘constitution;’ it means structure.”

·       Congressman Matt Salmon announced his second bill in his newly reintroduced Shrink our Spending Initiative that will highlight and cut wasteful taxpayer-funded programs. Upon introduction of his latest bill to eliminate federal funding for the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), Salmon statement: “A great example of government waste is the NLRB, a pro-union labor organization that dictates where businesses can locate, expand, and spend their capital.  The U.S. Department of Justice already ensures our labor laws are properly enforced, and does so in a far more professional and nonpartisan manner than the favoritism shown to Big Labor by the NLRB.  Congress has many hard choices to make as to where to spend and where to cut, but defunding an agency that does nothing but advance cronyism instead of protecting workers is not one of them.” Click to watch

·       The Arizona Department of Education today released information related to changes in the recently passed Fiscal Year 2016 budget that will impact funding for certain charter schools and charter school networks. The issue stems from language designed to adjust what is known as the Small School Weight (SSW), which is a weight in the charter school funding formula that increases funding for eligible small schools. The impact of the changes was initially estimated at $6.5 million, but will actually be closer to $15 million based on the technical language in the underlying law. The SSW cuts will have the following impact. Schools that previously received the SSW may no longer be eligible or their weight may be phased out over a three-year period based on several factors, including school size and organizational structure. The Department remains committed to working with legislative and charter school leaders to develop solutions that can mitigate the impact of the SSW cuts.
