Brewer Convening the Community with GPEC

Governor Brewer announced this morning that she will participate in a special summit to discuss the critical economic situation that the state faces.
I had an opportunity this week to hear a presentation regarding the budget situation. Let me say, it is not pretty. Regardless of what happens with the budget, our state government will not be the same this time next year.
