The Legislative Team submits the following legislative priorities to the AASRA State Board for their approval on Monday, September 26, 2016. Current team members are Joe Carter, Jerry Holmes, Janet Fee and

1. Protect the defined benefit pension plan and work to strengthen and improve the Arizona State Retirement System. Monitor legislative or other efforts to weaken the ASRS or other public pension systems.

3. Work for issues that will improve the integrity and image of public education, including K-12 and higher education.

4. Support legislation that increases the oversight and transparency of funding for charter schools and Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, and legislation that limits the expansion of ESA’s.

5. Work against any TABOR type legislation that may be introduced. (TABOR stands for Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights)

6. Work against any legislation that promotes excessive interest rates on consumer loans, such as payday and title loans.

 

7. Promote restoration and budget increases for human services such as caregiving funds and social services for children, seniors and families.
