Arizona has been groaning under the stress of Republican leadership for decades, but the last few years of their draconian financial management have been devastating.
This week new research from Arizona State University’s Morrison Institute for Public Policy reveals that 68% of Arizona voters disapprove of the way that the Arizona Legislature has been handling the state’s finance.
