Position Papers
HMO reform proposals have sprung up all over the United States. Most of these reforms address specific areas where profit-motivated HMO decision-making results in the denial of proper treatment. The Paul Johnson plan changes the way treatment decisions are made by subjecting HMOs to legal liability for negligent treatment decisions.
Nothing is more important to the future of Arizona than our children. Unfortunately, for too long our elected leaders have neglected to protect our children from violence and ensure they receive the highest quality education possible.

  • A 1998 Children Right's Council (CRC) report ranked Arizona the second worst state in the country to raise a child.
  • A 1998 U.S. Census Bureau study found that Arizona had the second-highest school dropout rate among 16-19 year-olds.
The Arizona Sustainable Growth and Preservation Plan
While growth has created economic opportunities for some Arizonans, left unchecked and uncontrolled, unplanned growth has also created strains on our current infrastructure, our school districts, and is beginning to erode our quality of life standards. --- Traffic, air quality, over-crowded schools, and crime are all affected by unplanned growth.
