2015 Initiatives Designed to Build for the Future

State Initiatives

  • Early Stage Venture Capital Fund: Establishment of a State-owned Early-Stage Technology Venture Fund, administered by the ACA, to provide much needed financing for early-stage technology firms.
  • Protection of Arizona’s Military Bases: Shield Arizona’s military bases from development encroachment. Ensure military airspace provides unfettered access from bases to military test ranges in the state without restrictions due to overdevelopment.
  • Unmanned Aerial Systems: Expand the capabilities of the largest unmanned aerial systems (UAS) training center in the world at Fort Huachuca. Seek ways to cultivate strong ties and additional projects with Nevada, one of the six states in the nation selected for UAS test sites, by leveraging existing assets statewide. Work to educate legislators and other key stakeholders who propose restriction on the use of UAS.
