Teacher pay protests – Jason Freed, president of the Tucson Education Association, joins Lorraine Rivera in studio to talk about recent protests for pay raises by teachers across the country and the effect it has had on local advocacy efforts. Water level update – Governor Ducey’s office has released more information what water conservation policies he’d like state lawmakers to consider to prevent a shortage from being declared in Lake Mead. Arizona 360 checks in with Sharon Megdal from the UA Water Resources Research Center for analysis of those proposals and an update on water levels in Lake Mead. Farmer water conservation – If water levels fall below 1075 feet in Lake Mead, agricultural users face the first cuts. The governor's office projects the odds of that happening in 2020 is nearly 50 percent. Vanessa Barchfield shows us how two farmers are preparing for potential shortages. Cybersecurity threats - This month Governor Ducey established the Arizona Cybersecurity Team to address cyber threats facing different institutions across the state. Lee Le Clair, director of cyber operations at the web development firm Ephibian, discussed some of the vulnerabilities that exist today and strategies cyber attackers use to gain sensitive information across the board. Adult literacy – Ahead of the Festival of Books, Arizona 360 is highlighting the resources that exist in Southern Arizona to address adult literacy.
