GOLD CANYON — According to Arizona Chamber of Commerce CEO Danny Seiden, the only thing hotter than Arizona’s temperature is its economy.

This month’s Pinal Partnership breakfast discussion, held at Gold Canyon Golf Resort, focused on bringing manufacturing jobs to the region. While the panelists touted the business-friendly atmosphere and collaborations between stakeholders, Seiden said the state’s budget that passed this week was a boon to the local economy.

“What keeps me up at night is how our tax rate compares to other states,” Seiden said. “We have to do what we can to stay competitive.”
