The Gaggle: How could the state's new budget affect you?

The Senate meets in legislative session at the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix on June 24, 2022.

More money for infrastructure, education and water issues and raises to state employees are included in the spending package.

This week on The Gaggle, a podcast by the Arizona Republic and, guest host Amanda Luberto talks with Arizona Republic state politics reporters Mary Jo Pitzl and Stacey Barchenger to break down how the legislation will affect you, and the whole state, moving forward.
