Brown & Patterson challenge AZ House priorities

Veteran lawmaker Jack Brown has served and lead in the legislature since the 60s.

UPDATE, 6/16: Coverage in today's AZ Republic on the Brown & Patterson protest, which we are continuing today.

PHOENIX -- Rep. Jack Brown (D-St. Johns) and I today voted no on House bills in protest of the GOP's AZ budget disaster, more wasted time and lack of priorities.

Jack and I are making our stand in favor of dealing with the real needs of Arizonans, and against more wasted time with mostly unneeded bad Republican pet project bills in the legislature.

I'm not sure how long this will go on, or how many other members will stand up to join us.

More on Brewer's bad budget plan.

Wishing you both luck and more who follow your lead. It's a down right shame that integrity in the legislatiive process on behalf of the people is a "minority" trait these days.
