The Recipe for a Prosperous Arizona

August 25, 2014


Government doesn’t create wealth, but it can impede it.  Low tax and regulatory environments attract business investment and allow existing businesses to thrive, creating the jobs that provide stable state revenues for education, public safety and infrastructure.   Check out my record of promoting policies supporting a prosperous economic future for Arizona.

Barto tops ranking in bills signed into law in 2014

June 2, 2014

Of my 23 Prime Sponsored bills, 15 were signed into law this session.  All passed with overwhelming bi-partisan support, if not unanimously.

At 65%, that is the highest % of bills passed by a lawmaker this session.  Here’s the Arizona Capitol Times piece: Barto, Lovas lead in percentage of bills signed into law.

I am proud of these successes because each of them address concerns that are important to our state – and don’t increase the scope of government.   In fact, in many cases, they reduced regulation, solved a critical issue, expanded consumer information or choice or kept an “out-of-control” board government agency in check.  Here are some examples: [Read more]

Help candidates with online petition signatures

October 24, 2013

Every election season candidates must gather petition signatures to qualify for the ballot – hundreds of them are required.  And in case an opponent challenges them, candidates try to collect a few hundred more signatures to ensure they are all valid.

Now it is easier  to support candidates running for office by signing their petitions.  You can sign them securely online.

Check it out and while you’re at it, if you reside within Legislative District 15, please sign mine.

NFIB/Arizona praises lawmaker for her 100-percent, pro-small business voting record

PHOENIX, Ariz., August 31, 2010 – The political action committee of Arizona’s leading small business association today announced its endorsement of Rep. Nancy Barto for election to the open Legislative District 7 seat in the Arizona Senate.

“Rep. Barto has a fundamental appreciation of the fact that small businesses are not smaller versions of big businesses, but instead have distinctively different difficulties in remaining solvent,” said Farrell Quinlan, NFIB/Arizona state director, who listed taxes (more than 80 percent of small business owners are single filers, meaning personal, not corporate, tax rates matter more to them), healthcare (less than half of small business owners in America can afford it), and regulations (small business owners pay almost twice as much to comply with the same regulation as big businesses do) as the three biggest differences.
