Governor Brewer called a special session on the budget today to deal with the huge shortfalls in the state budget.
Proposed spending cuts are spread throughout state agencies, including universities, community colleges, and K-12 schools.
"Democratic legislators have pushed to reduce spending cuts by instead deferring some payments into the next fiscal year, a proposal of former Democratic Gov. Janet Napolitano. Republicans have balked, citing projections that the state's fiscal troubles are expected to last several years."
