Katie Hobbs Releases Plan For An Affordable Arizona
PHOENIX — Today, Secretary of State and candidate for governor Katie Hobbs introduced her plan to put more money back in Arizonans’ pockets.
Katie is committed to providing much-needed relief to Arizona families, growing the economy, and setting Arizona up for long-term prosperity. This plan – along with Katie’s Inclusive Arizona, Accountable Arizona, and Voting Rights plans – is just the beginning of Katie’s mission to make Arizona the best place to work, live, and raise a family.
The plan is centered on three key objectives:
- Lowering costs for families with children by establishing a state-level child tax credit, exempting diapers and baby formula from sales taxes, and implementing a sales tax holiday for school supplies.
- Helping Arizonans get back to work in good-paying jobs by permanently expanding child care assistance and creating a refundable tax credit for career and technical education opportunities.
- Protecting the health and well-being of Arizona families by exempting necessities like over-the-counter medications and feminine hygiene products from sales taxes.
