AZ Illustrated Politics: Fred DuVal Says Legislature Flunked the Session

Posted By on Sun, May 4, 2014 at 9:05 PM

On Friday's AZ Illustrated Politics: Democratic gubernatorial candidate Fred DuVal said lawmakers earned between a D (for "disappointing") and F (for "failure") for recently completed legislative session. DuVal called for more dollars for education and child-welfare programs; said he was opposed to expanding programs that provide public dollars for private schools; criticized lawmakers for passing anti-gay and anti-abortion legislation; and promised to reverse Gov. Jan Brewer's push to deny driver's licenses and in-state tuition for DREAM Act kids.

Republican National Committeeman Bruce Ash and Pima County Democratic Party chairman Don Jorgensen tackled immigration issues, the latest skirmish over equal pay in the race between Congressman Ron Barber and Republican challenger Martha McSally, and the legislative session.
