Budget bill fails in Senate; Verschoor AWOL
The Senate has hit a major snag and has failed to pass the main budget measure that is part of a package that partially fixes a $2-billion deficit, and it has adjourned until Nov. 23.
The bill went down by a vote of 14-13.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Gray voted "no" so he could bring the vote up for reconsideration later.
All the Democrats voted "no" on the bill. So did Sen. Ron Gould, a Lake Havasu Republican.
