FGA Praises Arizona’s New Employment First Policy

The Foundation for Government Accountability supports Governor Doug Duceys’ continued commitment to the power of work, exemplified yesterday by his signing of Executive Order 2017-08 to establish an Employment First requirement in the state of Arizona.

“We applaud Governor Ducey for being a consistent champion for the power and dignity of work.  From his support for entrepreneurs, to tackling occupational licensing and the barriers they pose to people working, to this week’s executive order bringing the focus to employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, Governor Ducey is getting Arizona working.”

The full Executive Order can be found here.
