Arizona’s New Governor Gives Inaugural ‘State of the State Address’

Arizona Politics
Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs, in her first State of the State Address, outlined how she plans to tackle the challenges facing Arizonans, embarking on a path of bipartisan cooperation with the Arizona Legislature for a better future.

“The people of Arizona did not send us to this Capitol to solve easy problems or to leave them to the next generation. They sent us here to do the right thing – no matter how difficult that may prove to be. We will not let them down,” Governor Hobbs said.

Arizona’s 24th governor welcomed candid discussion about the issues facing our beloved state and provided clarity and understanding of her top priorities in her first year on the job: Continue building a resilient, innovative and prosperous Arizona for everyone.

Hobbs’ key issues: 

– Investing in Public Education
– Tackling Affordable Housing
– Lowering Costs of Living
– Immigration
– Women’s Rights
– Securing our Water Future

As a state senator, Hobbs co-sponsored bills to reduce medical cannabis application fees for veterans (SB 1300, 2018) and to allow medical cannabis research at universities (SB 1443, 2013).

Arizona legalized cannabis for medical use in 2010 and for recreational use in 2020. It is legal for Arizona medical marijuana patients and anyone 21 or older to buy cannabis products from Arizona dispensaries.
