It certainly gave me the opportunity to do what I’ve done today in order of doing some reasonable, carefully constructed vetoes to allow the state to move forward.” – Gov.

I think we still have work to do and I think leadership needs to step up to the table, from all four caucuses, and work with the governor to put Arizona back on a track to financial stability.” – Sen. Debbie McCune Davis when asked who won politically in the budget drama.

“I guess the problem with using the word ‘defeat’ is it presumes that somebody won, and I don’t know that anybody has won this cycle. We haven’t won. The governor hasn’t won. And I don’t think the Democrats have won. And the state certainly hasn’t won.” – Sen. Jonathan Paton, commenting on the special session.
