(Editor’s note: Voting on the bill was scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.)

The fate of a $1 billion bonding plan for Arizona’s public universities — a central demand of Gov. Doug Ducey — remained uncertain ahead of key Thursday votes at the Legislature.

Days of behind-the-scenes deal-making had gathered more Republican support, including after a small income-tax cut was added to the proposed budget that lawmakers are expected to also vote on Thursday.

Meanwhile, in full public view, the Legislature’s budget committees held marathon hearings Wednesday on the 10-bill state-budget package, a $9.8 billion spending plan covering everything from schools to health care to tax cuts.

The bills passed with Republicans in support and Democrats opposed.
