Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey will kick off the first full day of the SABEW19 conference and welcome attendees to his state. The fireside chat conversation with Maria Polletta of The Arizona Republic will center around top priorities for the state during Ducey’s time as the 23rd governor of Arizona. Some of these issues, including immigration, balancing the state budget and investing in education, are particularly relevant for business journalists across the country. Regarding immigration, the Arizona Border Strike Force was created to focus on border-related public safety. A possible closure of the U.S.-Mexico border has also been an issue in the news for Arizona in 2019.

Room 202 - Morgan Murphy Media / Elizabeth Murphy Burns and Richard Burns Theater, located on the 2nd Floor of ASU’s Cronkite School, 555 North Central Ave., Phoenix.
