Description
First Things First for Arizona's Children
All Arizonans benefit from voluntary early childhood education. Children start school ready to succeed; parents are able to keep good jobs and earn highter incomes; and taxpayers save money because early childhood education lowers drop-out rates, reduces crime, and cuts the cost of social services. This initiative would increase funding for early childhood developement and health programs. Local councils who know their communities' needs would distribute the majority of the funding, with oversight by a statewide board subject to audits and other accountability measures. Dedicated funding would come from an increase on the sales price of tobacco products.


Proposition 203 would establish an Early Childhood Development and Health Fund, consisting of revenues generated by an increase in the state tax on tobacco products, donations and state appropriations. The state tax on cigarettes would increase from $1.18 per pack to $1.98 per pack, and the tax on other types of tobacco products would be increased by a similar amount.

The Early Childhood Development and Health Fund would be administered by the new Arizona Early Childhood Development and Health Board (Board) appointed by the Governor, with the consent of the State Senate. 10% of the monies would be used for administrative costs and 90% would be used for program costs. No more than 10% of the program monies could be used to fund statewide grants or programs undertaken direc
