Legislature gets budget bill back to fix error

Arizona legislators have requested and received a budget bill back from Gov. Jan Brewer so they can fix a mistake.

The bill is one of 13 that made up a Republican budget-balancing package that was approved Friday after being negotiated with Brewer.

Legislative aides say the House inadvertently failed to amend the bill in question as agreed in the final version of the Republicans’ plan.

The House and Senate are to reconsider their earlier approvals of the bill so the intended changes can be made.

Senate Minority Leader David Schapira says mistakes happen when a budget is rushed through the Legislature.
