Journalists' Roundtable: State and county budgets

Plus, the issue of whether Pima County should fund early childhood education.

This week, Arizona 360 took a deeper dive with a journalists' roundtable into some of the headlines that shaped May. Green Valley News/Sahuarita Sun editor Dan Shearer, Arizona Daily Star editorial page editor Sarah Garrecht Gassen and Tucson Local Media executive editor Jim Nintzel joined Lorraine Rivera to discuss the most recent legislative session and recent issues taken up by the Pima County Board of Supervisors. The conversation also focused on an ongoing push by early childhood development advocates for the county to adopt the Pima County Preschool Investment Program, a scholarship program that would allow low-income families to send their children to a quality preschool.
