Istanbul; AZ budget; PEER on SW environment
ISTANBUL -- It's a beautiful night here and we're having a great trip. Check for updates from Turkey @RepPatterson on twitter.
I am also still watching and reporting some on issues back home in the southwest, including the latest and most reckless worst budget from legislative Republicans, which Gov. Jan Brewer should again veto as it would be an economic disaster for Arizona for many years.
On the environment: The USIWBC has responded to PEER's release of important info about the agency, and the response shows what a problem this little known agency is. See the Aug 10 story on this.
PEER also reports on hope for the imperiled Gunnison sage grouse.
