·       Today, Supt of Public Instruction Diane Douglas said she is very pleased by reports that Gov. Doug Ducey and legislators will call a special session and that a deal has been reached to settle the ongoing education funding lawsuit. “I strongly support the decision makers who have come together to address the need for increased education funding, including Gov. Ducey and leadership at the Legislature,” said Superintendent Douglas. “I am excited and pleasantly surprised to hear that the plaintiffs and defendants in the lawsuit were able to reach a compromise that will result in immediate new funds for our schools.” The Superintendent had previously expressed her disappointment that the state was only able to afford an additional $74 million for education in its FY 16 budget given increases in state revenues. This led her to call for an immediate appropriation of $400 million for classroom teachers, a plan that would have been supplemented in future years by Gov. Ducey’s land trust proposal.With respect to the proposed settlement, the Superintendent said that while she is relying on a broad description of the compromise, the specific details will be key.  However, she said she is confident that both parties are well represented and will do what is right for Arizona children.

 

·       Clint Hickman Delivers For Wickenburg: In an effort to connect employers and job seekers in the northwestern part of the county, Maricopa County and the Town of Wickenburg have entered into an innovative partnership. The county and Wickenburg will jointly fund a full-time professional from the county’s Workforce Development Division on site at the Wickenburg Public Library and Learning Center, 164 E. Apache Street. The job developer will link job seekers, private businesses and other employers in the Wickenburg area, as well as provide adult and youth programming within the Town Library. “This is an exciting opportunity to provide greater economic access to the growing northwest part of the county,” explained Supervisor Hickman. “I am elated that Mayor John Cook and his administration were so willing to collaborate with us to expand our reach and extend our employment services. I am certain that this will help to boost the economy there.” This position will offer classes and workshops to assist adults in resume writing, interviewing techniques, on-site employer recruiting and other critical services, as well as serve as case manager for job seekers. “This new initiative supports Wickenburg’s major employers by building a strong local workforce, and the addition of another staff person will enable us to provide highly-requested Saturday hours at the library,” commented Cook. “I am excited by the opportunities this partnership presents and appreciative of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, in particular the leadership of District 4 Supervisor Clint Hickman.” Both the Wickenburg Town Council and the County Board of Supervisors have approved the Inter-Governmental Agreement creating the position, financed through the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. “This partnership will bolster opportunities for local people and expand company footprints in the region,” explained Patricia Wallace, Director of the Workforce Development Division of the Maricopa County Human Services Department. “Wickenburg is a great place to live, work and play.” - See more at: .maricopa.gov

·       The Pima County Board Of Supervisors recently voted 4 -0 to do a hand count audit of the upcoming election.

 

·        Today, Congressman Paul A. Gosar joined 18 other members of the House in introducing legislation that will initiate articles of impeachment against John Koskinen, Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), for high crimes and misdemeanors: “On Koskinen’s watch, the IRS intentionally destroyed nearly 24,000 emails from Lois Lerner and failed to comply with a Congressional subpoena. To make matters worse, Commissioner Koskinen made a series of false and misleading statements, under oath, to Congress at multiple committee hearings on this matter. Koskinen said in March 2014 that the IRS had turned over all Lerner’s emails and all requested information, yet, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration uncovered more than 1,000 emails that the IRS tried to hide. As a result of this despicable conduct and his fraudulent statements under oath, Koskinen is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors and must be impeached. Under the direction of Commissioner John Koskinen, IRS officials have led a coordinated effort to hide the truth about this rogue agency’s targeting of innocent Americans based on their political beliefs. There is an old saying in Washington that ‘It's not the crime, it's the cover up’... In this case, it’s both. Commissioner Koskinen’s crimes are a scar on our Republic and an affront to the first amendment protections of our Constitution. Make no mistake, unelected bureaucrats, such as Commissioner Koskinen, will continue to freely violate the rule of law until the House enforces its sovereign power of impeachment under Article I, Section 2, Clause 5. These bureaucratic henchmen haven’t suffered any negative consequences for their corruption. That must end now.” See impeachment initiating  HERE

 

·        Congressman Matt Salmon on word that the USS Lassen has safely transited the South China Sea.“Today the destroyer USS Lassen safely transited the South China Sea, in international waters, near reefs where China has been constructing and militarizing artificial land masses in disputed territory.  As Secretary of Defense Carter has said, ‘The United States will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows.’  Freedom of navigation is vital to international commerce and passage and instrumental to international maritime law.  I strongly support U.S. efforts to assert these principles in support of freedom of the seas around the world.  I commend the crew of the USS Lassen for a job well done in this overdue demonstration of U.S. leadership in the South China Sea, the first I hope of more to come.”

·       Congressman Matt Salmon: Shrink Our Spending Initiative - "Last year, I began a program to identify and cut wasteful spending government-wide, because we know every federal department, office, and agency has wasteful spending within their budgets. I called this program my Shrink Our Spending Initiative. This year, I found $3 billion of your hard-earned tax dollars that the government has decided to fritter away on ineffective, duplicative, or downright wasteful programs. Join me in my fight to cut spending and protect your hard-earned tax dollars." – Matt  read more about the initiative

 

·        Sen John McCain, Chairman Of The Senate Armed Services Committee on the Senate’s passage of the Cyber Security Information Sharing Act: “The Senate’s passage of the Cyber Security Information Sharing Act is a critical step forward in addressing cyber threats and ensuring we have the tools in place to deter future cyber-attacks. As Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I believe that enacting legislation to confront cyber threats must be among the highest priorities of Congress. The need for Congressional action is also enhanced by the Obama Administration’s inability to develop the policies necessary to deter our adversaries in cyberspace. In just the last year alone, we’ve seen cyber-attacks launched by malign actors such as Iran, North Korea, China, and Russia and against national security targets including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Pentagon, and the Office of Personnel Management. As Admiral Michael Rogers, Commander of U.S. Cyber Command, recently warned, ‘It’s only a matter of time before someone uses cyber as a tool to do damage to critical infrastructure.’   McCain’s remarks here.  McCain’s floor statement supporting the Cyber Security Information Sharing Act here.

 

·       Congressman Matt Salmon after voting in favor of H.R. 597, a bill to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank of the United States.“I fundamentally oppose the idea that the government is involved in making loans to businesses, and I believe our founders would be equally opposed.  Unfortunately for our exporters, countries around the world offer their own Export-Import Banks that provide effective financing for their domestic industries.  By reauthorizing the Ex-Im Bank, we ensure a level playing field for those who want to import American goods by allowing them access to the same financing as other developed nations. Over the past few months, I’ve had countless conversations with small businesses in the fifth district.  Each of these entrepreneurs has told me about the destructive effects of the collapse of this bank in a world where national involvement in international trade is commonplace.  Make no mistake; today’s vote was a vote in favor of jobs right here in Arizona.  I’m focused on reforming our policies so that we can get the government out of business financing, Ex-Im Bank included.  Until that day however, American businesses should not be penalized for creating jobs here at home by policies that result in fewer sales and subsidized foreign competition.”

·       John McCain On The Obamacare Insurance Premium Increases for Arizona: "When Arizonans see their insurance premiums skyrocket under Obamacare this year, they can thank Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, who proclaims the so-called “Affordable Care Act” as her proudest vote in Congress. According to data released yesterday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Arizonans enrolled in Obamacare will see their premiums increase by an average of 17.5 percent – more than twice the national average – while residents of Phoenix will see their rates jump even higher by an estimated 19 percent. Unfortunately, Ann Kirkpatrick’s shortsighted stamp of approval of the President’s health care law will continue to burden Arizona taxpayers with rising costs, decreased quality of care, fewer providers, and less choices. Our state deserves a representative that will fight to repeal and replace this fundamentally flawed law, as I have done since 2009. Ultimately, Americans should have the freedom to buy affordable health insurance that works for them and their families – not the federal government."

·       Sen John McCain On The Obama Administration’s support for Russia’s invitation to Iran to join international talks on Syria’s future: “The Obama Administration’s support for Russia’s invitation to Iran to join international talks on Syria’s future is foolish and dangerous. Iran and Russia are not interested in a negotiated solution in Syria that favors U.S. interests. They are interested in imposing a limited military solution, which they are doing with increasing numbers of Iranian forces on the ground backed by Russian airpower. Pretending to be constructive participants in international diplomacy only buys Iran and Russia time to achieve the ends they seek on the battlefield. These regimes do not share our goals or our interests. They want to double down on the Assad regime, destroy what is left of the moderate Syrian opposition, defeat U.S. objectives in Syria, and impose a settlement on their terms. This has been true for nearly five years, and never more so than today. That this simple reality continues to elude the Administration is astonishing.”
