Arizona Capitol Times
An Arizona House committee in the middle of the night approved a package of budget bills and seemed poised to add millions in spending for K-12 education when the bills reach the House floor to break a stalemate that stalled a budget deal for several days.
The Appropriations Committee began debating a series of bills negotiated between Republican House and Senate leaders and Gov. Doug Ducey at about 9 p.m. Thursday and finished voting on the bills making up the $9.58 billion budget package at about 3:15 a.m. Friday.
The full House is scheduled to debate the bills Friday morning, though it is unclear if that will happen.
