Republican Briefs

 

Editor - Frosty Taylor repcomm@cox.net or frostytaylor@cox.net       Web Master John Strasser

“Whether I became a PC when I moved into my home in a different district is a non-issue because I was a PC when I was elected - although there are those who are trying to make an issue of it,” Maricopa County Republican Chairman Tyler Bowyer told the Briefs on Wednesday. Bowyer and his family moved from their Chandler home - after it was sold in July 2015 - into LD25 later last summer. Contrary to reports that have circulated for several weeks, Bowyer says he checked to make sure there was a PC opening in the LD25 Duke precinct prior to purchasing and moving his family into the bungalow in Mesa. Bowyer said their prior home sold much quicker than they expected it to. In the process of getting the family settled into their new home, he didn’t get around to filling out his new PC application and changing his registration until in the fall, he explained. “It was, and is, a non-issue because I was a PC when I was elected to office,” he emphasized. During the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (BOS) last meeting, he was appointed a LD25 PC. The BOS couldn’t not appoint PCs from the cutoff date in November or December until after the January 2016 county/state mandatory meetings.

Gov Doug Ducey: In January, I stood in front of a joint legislature to deliver my priorities for this session – and key among them was a strong focus on career and technical education. Now, following a bipartisan – unanimous – vote in both chambers, we are one step closer to providing vital support for thousands of Arizona students while keeping a structurally-balanced budget. This victory is a high testament to what I’ve said since the beginning – we can be responsible with our budget while adding significant, real dollars to K-12 education. Over the past month, I’ve traveled the state corner to corner. I’ve met with education leaders, teachers, principals, parents and students. They share this commitment to ensuring that all Arizona students are prepared for life after high school graduation – whether college or career.To them, and to all Arizonans, I’m proud to say that the plan I signed today delivers. I thank our legislators – especially Speaker David Gowan and President Andy Biggs – for working swiftly and in good faith to put our kids first.

Analysis of the "ICE Agent Support Act of 2016" -- U.S. has the tools and funds to enforce immigration law in the interior, but this bill could significantly defray costs: The Center for Immigration Studies has published an analysis of the "ICE Agent Support Act of 2016" (S.2538), the Senate bill introduced by Senators Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) "[t]o provide resources and incentives for the enforcement of immigration laws in the interior of the United States." Dan Cadman, a Center Fellow and author of the analysis, said, "The U.S. already has the tools and resources needed to respond to the country's high level of illegal immigration. But this bill ameliorates the burden on the taxpayer by directing that immigration enforcement fines be placed into an account that can be used to offset immigration enforcement appropriations. What it lacks, though, are the logistics to make that happen." View the entire analysis at: http://www.cis.org/Quick-Look-S-2538-ICE-Agent-Support-Act-201.

Maricopa-County-GOP-Slams-NPV The Republican Party of Maricopa County’s Executive Guidance Committee has voted overwhelmingly to oppose both the state house and state senate versions of the National Popular Vote legislation currently being considered by state lawmakers. The vote of opposition is rooted in concerns that the two bills would grossly change our electoral system and render the will of Arizona voters subservient to that of high populace, liberal states such as California and New York, according to MCRC Chairman Tyler Bowyer.

160216-2130 - AZRRT Special Call To Action By Jose Borrajero    new website at http://www.publicrecord.report/category/alerts/ The following table contains some very important information regarding three parental rights and privacy of information bills that will be heard in committee very soon, but first a quick observation: In communist countries there is no such thing as parental rights or privacy of information. This statement is not the result of hearsay or reading a book, but the result of personal experience. Some European so-called democracies are following this pattern. There are people in this country that would have us move in that direction. You still have the right and the ability to let your government know your opinion. Do not squander that right. Everyone reading this material should be contacting the members of the committees cited here in the manner that best suits them, namely via telephone, e-mail, or ALIS/RTS. Don’t count on the next guy doing it. He is counting on you to do it. THESE ARE ALL STRIKER BILLS
