CHANGE OF PLANS: STATE BUDGET DISCUSSION CAN WAIT
posted by Michael Chihak
We are stepping back from original plans for Arizona Week's debut program on Friday. We will reserve exploring the issue of the state budget deficit for a program in the near future.
Instead, Friday's program will focus on the aftermath of the tragic shootings two days ago in which six people were killed and 14 injured, including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords.
We are exploring a number of options for the program, and likely we will spend at least a couple more days listening to and learning from the public discourse as it continues unfolding. Then we will begin setting in place the topics we will cover and the guests we will invite for interviews.
