Proposition 302 would repeal First Things First program

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Proposition 302 would repeal a program called First Things First and allow lawmakers to tap into that money to help balance Arizona's budget.

Nearly $325 million is at stake.

First Things First helps tens of thousands of Arizona families with young children. It was approved by voters four years ago.

Legislators want to repeal the program and put that money into the general fund.

Tess Rafols talked to Matt Ladner of the Goldwater Institute about the issue.
