Yuma senator ‘glad’ for role in turning around state’s economy
By Mara Knaub
Sen. Don Shooter, R-Yuma, is happy to have had a part in turning around the state’s multimillion-dollar budget deficit. His hope for the new year is “to continue keeping the state solvent and still encourage business.”
Shooter chaired the Senate Committee on Appropriations last year, producing a balanced budget with new funding for education and hundreds of millions in a rainy day fun, according to Senate majority leader Andy Biggs.
