2011-04-09 House Speaker's Budget Claim: Mostly False (weekly)

Arizona Fact Check looks at House Speaker Kirk Adams' claim that: "Today we can say—for the first time in a decade—that Arizona's budget is structurally balanced without relying on any gimmicks, accounting tricks or borrowing."


The verdict: Mostly false, because the budget is riddled with gimmicks and accounting tricks.
