The Budget: Will Brewer Blink?

Posted By on Wed, Aug 12, 2009 at 5:42 PM

The Arizona Senate, unable to get enough votes to refer temporary sales tax to the ballot, has instead passed pretty much the same version of the budget that Brewer vetoed on July 1.

Here's an interesting detail from the Arizona Republic:

The latest plan keeps alive a key Republican goal to repeal a state property tax that, without legislative action, will be included in bills being set next week.

But it drops $400 million in corporate- and individual-income tax cuts
that had been proposed during the special session.

I talk about why those tax cuts are a bad idea in this week's Skinny.

So will Brewer blink and let this budget become law? Will she veto it? Or will there be some changes made before she gets to see it?
