(OPEN):
AS THE ARIZONA LEGISLATIVE-SESSION OPENS THIS WEEK [THE WEEK OF JANUARY 13TH], "A-A-R-P"-VOLUNTEERS HAVE SET AN AGENDA TO WORK ON ADVOCACY-ISSUES AT THE STATE-CAPITOL--INCLUDING FAMILY-CAREGIVING, PENSION-PROTECTION, AND AUTO-TITLE-LOAN CONSUMER-PROTECTIONS.  "A-A-R-P" ADVOCACY-VOLUNTEER VIRGINIA BRANT, OF PHOENIX, SAYS THAT TOP ON THE LIST IS BUILDING SUPPORT FOR FAMILY, IN-HOME CAREGIVERS...

(BRANT):
"
'A-A-R-P' IS WORKING TO BUILD SUPPORT, AMONG STATE-LAWMAKERS, TO STUDY HOW ARIZONA CAN BETTER SUPPORT THE HUNDREDS-OF-THOUSANDS OF ARIZONA FAMILY-CAREGIVERS.  THE LEGISLATIVE-STUDY COULD IDENTIFY POLICIES AND RESOURCES THAT CAN BETTER ASSIST FAMILY-CAREGIVERS IN HELPING OLDER ARIZONANS REMAIN INDEPENDENT, AND IN THEIR OWN HOMES.  ARIZONA WILL HAVE MORE THAN 280-THOUSAND PEOPLE OVER THE AGE OF 85, BY THE YEAR 2032; THAT'S A [ONE-]HUNDRED-PERCENT INCREASE FROM 2012.  SO, WE'RE TRYING TO FOCUS SOME LEGISLATIVE-ATTENTION ON THIS AGING TIDAL-WAVE--AND [ON] HOW TO BEST HELP ARIZONA-FAMILIES TAKE CARE OF THEIR OWN."

(CLOSE):
BRANT ADDS THAT "A-A-R-P" WILL ALSO BE WORKING ON PROTECTING ARIZONA'S PENSION-SYSTEMS--AND ON ADVOCATING FOR STRONGER CONSUMER-PROTECTIONS IN AUTO-TITLE LOANS.  THE FULL LIST OF ADVOCACY-PRIORITIES CAN BE FOUND AT "A-A-R-P"-DOT-ORG-SLASH-"A-Z".
