ARIZONA – Arizona Governor Katie Hobbs announced a First 100 Days Initiative, which includes the first actions her administration will take.
The agenda will focus on her top policy priorities, such as strengthening the economy and making Arizona more affordable, improving public education and securing the state’s water future.
“Today marks a new era in Arizona. I am proud to launch my First 100 Days Initiative, which will focus on addressing the biggest challenges facing Arizonans, such as making our state more affordable and sustainable,” said Governor Hobbs.
As one of the first actions, an executive order on nondiscrimination was signed following his inauguration ceremony at the State Capitol. Executive Order 2023-01, entitled “Protecting Employment Opportunities,” strengthens federal anti-discrimination laws by directing agencies to ensure protections in all aspects of employment and hiring so that Arizonans have an equal opportunity to participate in the labor market.
Just last January 2, Hobbs was sworn in as Arizona’s new governor, an event where Secretary of State Adrian Fontes; Attorney General Kris Mayes; State Treasurer Kimberly Yee; Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne; and State Mine Inspector Paul Marsh were also sworn in.
Hobbs will be Arizona’s fifth woman governor and the first Democrat elected in sixteen years. This January 3, Hobbs participated in a Day of Service, kicking off her administration, calling on Arizonans to volunteer with local non-profit organizations to make a difference in their communities.
