Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
Despite the Holidays, I hope that you will take some time to address this very urgent legislative priority as quickly as possible.
The Governor is in the final stages of drafting her budget proposal for the upcoming legislative session.
December 17th, 2013 a coalition of 30 organization, both public and private-sector, sent a joint letter to the Governor and Legislators requesting that they stop transferring HURF revenues for non-transportation infrastructure purposes. A copy of the letter is attached.
Arizona Speaker of the House Andy Tobin and House Minority Leader Chad Campbell sent a joint letter to the Governor requesting no HURF transfers for the next two years. A copy of the press release is also attached.
Please contact the Governor immediately and ask her to support and include the bipartisan Tobin/Campbell HURF proposal as part of her budget.
The Governor can be reached at:
The Honorable Janice K. Brewer
1700 W. Washington Street
Phoenix, AZ 85007
You can also e-mail her through her office’s website at www.azgovernor.gov under the “contact us” prompt.
Thank you for your prompt attention,
Rural Transportation Advocacy Council
