Deal reached to settle Arizona school funding lawsuit

Arizona Senate President Andy Biggs says a deal in principle has been reached to settle a long-running school funding lawsuit. Biggs said late Saturday that documents were being prepared over the weekend and he will brief members of his Republican caucus Monday and Tuesday. House Speaker David Gowan notified Republican House members to come to the Capitol on Tuesday.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas' motion to sever ties with Common Core has passed on a 6-2 vote. The vote affects schoolchildren in every classroom across the state. Douglas addressed the Arizona Board of Education on Monday morning.

An overwhelming number of Arizona voters say they would once again vote to support First Things First should the early childhood education program be on the ballot in 2016. Voters also say they oppose shifting First Things First funds to K-12 education while the state continues to have a budget surplus, according to a recent statewide survey of likely voters conducted by Moore Information.

The FBI is warning local police departments all over the country about threats from an anarchist group urging random attacks on Halloween.

To speed up the behind-the-wheel testing process and better assess driver safety, the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division has implemented a new scoring system for the preliminary portion of the road test that will save time and allow for more road tests per day.
