Ducey Details 2018-19 Budget And Education Funding Decisions

Also, the governor talks National Guard deployment and the opioid epidemic.

A week after signing a budget that included more money for teachers and school districts, Gov. Doug Ducey traveled to Tucson. One of his stops included Raytheon for a dedication ceremony celebrating an expansion project.

Arizona 360 spoke with Ducey one-on-one following the ceremony, discussing a variety of issues that have progressed since the start of the year. Starting with the unprecedented push by teachers to increase education funding, he explained how each school district will have the opportunity to distribute the nine percent funding increase as they see fit.

Host Lorraine Rivera asked Ducey to talk about his other priorities and significant decisions, including the deployment of the National Guard to the border, the Opioid epidemic, and the ongoing NAFTA negotiations.
