Phoenix, AZ – Businesses may have to wait a little longer for the tax cuts that Governor Jan Brewer promised them earlier this year.
The tax cuts were part of Brewer's five-point plan unveiled in March for getting the state back on its financial feet. Speaking Monday to a Tempe business group, the governor said she remains convinced that lower taxes are the way to get firms to locate and expand here.
Phoenix, AZ – A new report today shows the state's jobless rate remained virtually unchanged for the second month in a row. But that doesn't necessarily mean the economy is stabilizing.
The 9.1 percent unemployment figure for September is the same as it was in August. And it's actually a tenth of a point less than July. But Lisa Danka of the state Department of Commerce said that doesn't show the whole picture.
