The Senate passed a resolution March 1 that would allow the previous year’s budget to go into effect for the next year, if the governor won’t sign off on a new budget.
Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs vetoed a continuation budget that Republican leaders in the House and Senate passed without the support of Democratic members last month.
Democrat lawmakers and Hobbs are asking Republicans to come to the table with them but accuse the other side of being resistant. Republicans say the same of their Democrat colleagues.
Senate Concurrent Resolution 1034 is sponsored by Sen. J.D. Mesnard, R-Chandler, and will go to the Secretary of State’s Office, and later voters to consider. Hobbs wouldn’t have the opportunity to veto the measure.
