Arizona agencies outline impacts of budget cuts

PHOENIX – State agencies have projected how they would respond to budget cuts of 5, 10, 15 and 20 percent, listing cuts including mass layoffs of university professors to shutting down Department of Public Safety aviation units.

Agencies submitted reduction plans at the direction of Gov. Jan Brewer’s budget director, but Brewer’s office stresses that the submissions don’t represent a plan or proposal.

Brewer spokesman Paul Senseman said Brewer and her staff will use the details on possible effects of budget cuts as a tool while preparing a budget proposal and working with lawmakers on ways to close the big budget gap.

Brewer’s budget office made the submissions available for inspection in response to public records requests by media organizations.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
