Gov. Jan Brewer lays out agenda for politicians
PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona lawmakers are due to report to the state Capitol on Monday, and their agenda for the 2014 Legislative session includes establishing a spending budget, overhauling a scandal-plagued child welfare agency and considering whether to repeal a sweeping election law.
These debates and others will rage as Republican Gov. Jan Brewer gets what's likely to be her final chance to flex gubernatorial muscles. Barring a constitutional amendment extending term limits, this year will be the end of her tenure.
Brewer will speak to lawmakers in her annual State of the State address Monday.
In an interview with The Associated Press Thursday, Brewer outlined her goals, saying she wants to focus on the budget, economic development, Child Protective Services and education, which she said has always been a top priority.
