The Az Budget Strategy Plan: B-A-N-A-N-A-S

Posted By on Fri, May 29, 2009 at 1:36 PM

We mentioned yesterday that Gov. Jan Brewer appears to be on the verge of coming up with some kind of budget plan of her own, which may put her at odds with the GOP caucus. And that there's a business group out there, Building a Better Arizona, which will be supporting the Brewer budget plan with a media blitz. Brewer may or may not be working with them, depending on which version of the story you read and who you want to believe.

We've got more details this morning from Scarpinato at the Star, Pitzl at the Republic, and bloggers at Blog for Arizona, Sonoran Alliance and Noble Thinking. When will Espresso Pundit weigh in?

Our take: This entire budget fiasco is completely nuts.

BTW, here's the strategy memo itself, courtesy of Sonoran Alliance: highgroundmemo.pdf
