Policies from A-Z for a Livable and Competitive State – publication by Morrison Institute for Public Policy, Arizona State University, 2006.
Morrison Institute for Public Policy set out to look at the state in terms of its ideas, instead of issues,comparisons, or problems. To begin, a broad review of policies, programs, and choices over the state’s history was done to produce a long list of interestingideas. Then, each was rated according to two criteria. Had the public policy or set of policies affected many people in Arizona or the entire state? Was the idea original to Arizona or specificallyor significantly adapted to our circumstances? Considering the numerous possibilities this publication could have gone from A-Z far more than once. The 26 covered in Arizona Ideas then are simply examples of notions that havebecome or inspired public policy over time.
