Does Stanton still want to pull federal funds over school mask mandate ban?

February 9, 2022

Last August, Greg Stanton urged the Biden Administration to withhold federal funding for Arizona schools if Governor Ducey did not end his ban on school mask mandates. 

Stanton said at the time“these funds are not intended to be used for policies that undercut scientific research to pursue purely partisan ideological priorities.”

As Democrat governors across the country end their school mask mandates, will Greg Stanton stick to his firm belief that kids in schools should be masked and Biden should withhold federal funding for AZ schools? Or will he admit that Doug Ducey was right all along?
