Hobbs Ignores Energy Crisis Hurting Arizonans' Financial Security Within the San Carlos Irrigation Project

PHOENIX, ARIZONA— Senate President Pro Tempore T.J. Shope is sharing extreme frustration over a lack of care, concern, and action from Governor Katie Hobbs with skyrocketing power bills detrimentally impacting residents living in the San Carlos Irrigation Project.

Citizens residing in Florence and Coolidge are being taken advantage of by the federally owned company, managed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, who in August began imposing unreasonable and drastic rate hikes on customers for electricity by more than 250% in a single month.

In an effort to quickly address this energy crisis hurting his constituents, Senator Shope joined Senator Sine Kerr and Representative Gail Griffin, Chairs of the Senate and House Committees on Natural Resources, Energy & Water, as well as Representative Teresa Martinez, in an October 3rd letter calling on Governor Hobbs to advocate for these residents by fulfilling her duty to push back against the Biden Administration and find solutions to cut these exorbitant costs. The Legislators have not heard back from the Governor, signaling her complicity with Biden's radical environmental agenda jeopardizing the financial security of Arizonans.

"As a direct result of her inaction, these citizens, many of which are living on fixed incomes, are facing the tough reality of not being able to keep the lights on in the coming months. They're being slapped with ridiculous monthly energy bills ranging from $400 to $800 for single-family homes," said Senator Shope. "By ignoring the financial pain our citizens are experiencing, Governor Hobbs is displaying she's nothing more than an accomplice in Biden's scheme to impose a radical energy agenda with unattainable environmental goals, all for political gain. Her selfish focus on politics instead of people continues to run our state into the ground and is costing Arizonans big time."

There's a clear political stance in the statement, positioning Governor Hobbs as prioritizing political gains over the well-being of her constituents. This aligns with a broader narrative criticizing environmental free games policies advocated by the Biden Administration.

Another advantage of assignment writing is its role in fostering self-reflection and self-improvement. As students receive feedback from instructors and peers, they gain insights into their strengths and areas for growth. This feedback loop encourages students to reflect on their work, identify improvement areas, write my assignment and take proactive steps to enhance their learning outcomes. Additionally, assignments often involve iterative processes, where students revise and refine their work based on feedback, leading to continuous improvement and academic growth.

The objective of Run 3 is to guide the character safely through each level by jumping, running, and maneuvering to avoid obstacles such as gaps, pits, and rotating platforms.
