State Auditor John Dougall and Morgan County Councilwoman Tina Cannon learn about the FGA Solutions Summit from State Representative Kim Coleman. Coleman shares the initiatives of The Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) and how Arizona Governor Ducey smacked down an overreaching occupational licensing board. Juan Carlos, a cosmetology student, just want to give back to others by providing free haircuts to homeless veterans.

Dougall and Cannon then talk tax reform. Cannon, a tax practitioner, talks about our disastrous federal tax system. Cannon is stunned that Congress is considering lowering the limit for 401(k) contributions and advocates for expanding incentives for tax-free saving. Dougall and Cannon both express concerns with Congress' idea to penalize savings while encouraging short-term congressional spending.
