Putting a face on Arizona's harmful budget cuts

Arizonans protest draconian budget cuts.

PHOENIX -- Thousands of Arizonans, especially many with disabilities, are now suffering directly due to FY09 state budget cuts rammed through by Republicans in the middle of the night on Jan 30-31.

Veteran Arizona political reporter Bud Foster of KOLD 13 in Tucson had this issue as the top story last night on the news, 'Putting a face on Arizona's budget cuts,' (click to read and view video) featuring Tucson's district 29 Democratic Representatives Daniel Patterson and Matt Heinz.

We both voted against the harsh cuts, and will continue to lead the way with the House Democrats with options for a fair balanced FY10 budget that would protect Arizonans most at-risk.
