STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – House Democrats sent a letter to Republicans and Republican Gov. Jan Brewer today asking them to work with Democrats in a bipartisan way to solve Arizona’s continuing budget crisis.
Republicans continue to support a wrong-track, no-solution process that would create competing budgets instead of working to solve the budget together.
“We hope Republicans finally step up and do the hard work to solve this budget crisis by negotiating together,” House Democratic Leader David Lujan said. “Arizonans know a budget crisis this big can’t be solved from one side of the aisle. Republicans’ failure to lead just pushes Arizona farther down the wrong track."
