The Morrison Institute: State of the State of Public Policy Choices for Arizona

Rivko Knox attended the "State of the State, Public Policy Choices for Arizona". She wrote an excellent summary of the very important presentations at this year's event held by the Morrison Institute for Public Policy at Arizona State University. There is a large cast of well-respected authorities; this is a must-read for anyone interested in Arizona Public Policy matters.

"Grady Gammage summed it up as: AZ is a challenge. Our government does not function; we, along with the rest of the US and the world, are in transition but we are not fully aware of it. Some want to go back to the days of housing being our economic engine, and it is not and will not be. How do we get the individual, society, and government on the "same page"? We have lost our common bonds, our common methods of communication; however, this is just a transition, not the end! In addition, the Morrison Institute will continue to engage the public in issues of importance to the public!

Topics covered were:

  • An extremely dynamic welcome by Michael Crow, President of ASU
  • Overcoming Adversity and Inclusive Workforce Policy, that focused on Transitions for Young Adults with Disabilities, with the keynoter being Mario Bonds
  • Latino Public Policy Center Initiatives that included a report on the CIR
  • A Post Election Panel: What Can AZ Expect for 2015 and Beyond
  • A conversation about AZ's Water Future."

From Robyn Prud'homme-Bauer, President of the League of Women Voters of Arizona: "The League of Women Voters is committed to working for an accessible voter registration and election system that protects all voters against discrimination at the ballot box. The early balloting system in Arizona is an easy and accessible way for voters to vote."
