Taking a page out of the playbooks of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, extreme Arizona lawmakers are pushing a series of bills attacking firefighters, teachers, nurses and others who work hard to keep our communities safe and strong.
These bills would lead to larger class sizes in our schools, more dangerous working conditions for firefighters and police officers and making our communities less safe.
As in Wisconsin and Ohio, these measures are not about balancing Arizona’s budget and are not about jobs. They are about the destructive political agenda of right-wing politicians and their corporate funders are pushing across the country to consolidate their power.
