Senator Allen talks about Arizona education, bills and the budget
Senator Allen spoke with Brian Kramers from the White Mountain Independent.
WHITE MOUNTAINS —Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, has again been appointed to chair the Arizona Senate’s education committee, and is optimistic about the future of education in Arizona.
“There is no doubt that education is a top priority,” she told The Independent.
Allen said she would “absolutely” support the governor’s proposal to increase teacher salaries 2 percent over five years, “if we could make it work in the budget.”
Allen is also proposing a bill, SB 1061, that would cap the three state universities from increasing “tuition and mandatory fees” to “2 percent per school year,” and undergraduate students who start school would pay the same amount in tuition for four consecutive years, according to the bill’s fact sheet.
