GOP fights measure to fund AZ schools

If you support more state funding for Arizona's schools, and according to polls most of us do, you'll want to read E.J. Montini's column in today's (July 26) Arizona Republic.  

It's about attempts by state Republicans to keep a measure off the ballot that will extend the 1-cent-per-dollar sales tax and limit the revenue it would raise to education, health care and construction projects.

Montini writes: 

"The whole point of the initiative is to dedicate tax funds to education in such a way that lawmakers can't get their hands on them.  Lawmakers hate that.  It offends them.  They don't believe you have any right to tell them how they should spend your money."

Access to health care varies across countries, groups and individuals, largely influenced by social and economic conditions as well as the health policies in place. Countries and jurisdictions have different policies and plans in relation to the personal and population based health care goals within their societies. Thanks.
