State of Arizona on Vacation Soon?

I know half of the state heads to San Diego in July but does that mean that the actual state has to shut down?!  Sensing an impasse, it looks like Governor Brewer has instructed her staff to prepare for a state that has no budget come 11:59 PM on June 30th.  While this isn't the first time it's come down to the last minutes, the state hasn't actually shut down services in the last 20+ years. 

Last year when we came close to the wire, there was back up legislation to keep essential functions working but according to experts, not having a budget by July 1st could cause for some serious issues.

After a few false starts, could we finally make some headway this week or next?
