Ariz. Senate approves new limit on state spending

A bill approved by the Arizona Senate would place a new limit on state government spending.

The bill would allow increases only for population growth and inflation, starting with a spending level that is comparatively low now because of the Great Recession’s hit on revenue.

The Senate’s 21-9 vote Wednesday generally tracked along party lines and sends the bill to the House.
