Gov. Doug Ducey said Monday that he likes the concept of cutting taxes but stopped short of endorsing the Republican tax cut bill making its way through Congress.

"I don't want to see anything hurt our teachers. I want to see it help our teachers, but I want to understand the details of the full plan," the governor said.

Republicans aim to pass the bill, that sharply reduces corporate income taxes and adds more than $1 trillion to the national debt over 10 years, by the Thanksgiving holiday.

The governor was a keynote speaker at a Capitol rally for the Job Creators Network, a group traveling the country in support of tax cuts.
