    The Arizona Legislature has given final approval to a bill setting out the conditions for the state’s community colleges to start offering four-year degrees. On Wednesday, the Senate passed the legislation with a 24-6 vote, and the House already approved SB 1453. The only thing that remains now is a decision by Gov. Doug Ducey.

    There’s been bipartisan support for this bill, but both parties share concerns about costs. 

    Democratic Sen. Rosanna Gabaldón, who voted "no," says she sees this bill as duplicating existing efforts by universities.

    “Arizona's already underfunding our public education, and I believe this bill will make our community colleges and public universities compete for that same funding. Why make this a solution looking for a problem?" Gabaldón said. 

    Republican Sen. David Livingston voted "yes," but also voiced his concern that this bill may result in higher taxes.

    Four national voting rights groups sent a letter to Arizona Republican Senate President Karen Fann voicing their concerns about the Maricopa County Election audit.

    The Brennan Center and the Carter Center, among others, say that Cyber Ninjas, the company the state Senate hired, lacks the skills and independence necessary to conduct an audit.

    The shenanigans at the Maricopa County Community College District don’t seem to end.

    The troublemaker this time is governing board member Kathleen Winn, whose meddling in the search for a new chancellor halted the process indefinitely.

    Turns out the vice-chair of the search committee had somebody specific in mind to replace former Chancellor Maria Harper-Marinick, and according to a district-commissioned report, that damaged the integrity of the process.
