Arizona Legislature debating bills but not voting

PHOENIX — The Arizona Legislature is apparently paying attention to Gov.
Jan Brewer’s message that she won’t sign any bills until she sees a budget she
can approve on her desk.

The House on Thursday is set to debate 13 bills but hasn’t scheduled votes on
any of them. The Senate is set to debate five bills and also hasn’t scheduled
votes. Wednesday’s action followed the same game plan.

All the bills have passed the other chamber, so a passing vote would
trigger their transmittal to the governor.

But with Brewer sending a message this week as a budget package stalled, legislative leaders are apparently not chancing a veto by doing that.

Brewer’s spokesman said the state’s immediate priority is a budget and that’s
what she wanted to sign first.
