Biden's 100-Day Plan: The Impact On Arizona

by Kendal Blust, Rodrigo Cervantes, Ron Dungan, Rocio Hernandez, Michel Marizco

President Joe Biden established a list of priorities for his administration to achieve by his 100th day in office. From April 26-30, a new KJZZ series looks at how those policies play out for Arizona.

Part 1 | April 26, 2021

One Wall And Plenty Of Politics

The first issues for Biden include the U.S.-Mexico border, Mexico and Latin America.

Part 2 | April 27, 2021

Where Energy, Climate And Policy Meet

About 90% of the Chaco Canyon region has been leased out for oil and gas drilling over the years. But the Biden administration has pledged to fight against environmental injustice.

Part 3 | April 28, 2021

Asylum Still Elusive At The Border

Biden has started to roll back some Trump-era policies, but he has left others in place — and has struggled to humanely restore the asylum system.

Part 4 | April 29, 2021

Clean Energy, Tense Atmosphere

President Joe Biden wants U.S. energy policies to move toward greener alternatives — but his counterpart in Mexico is looking for the opposite.

Part 5 | April 30, 2021

Making College More Accessible

President Joe Biden has proposed making college free. What would that mean for Arizona and its students?
