Brewer boasts better-than-expected budget surplus (access required)

Gov. Jan Brewer touted a year-ending budget surplus that’s about $200 million more than was expected, which the governor attributed to the improving economy and her “sound fiscal leadership.”

In a press statement on Monday, Brewer said the state had an estimated cash balance of about $895 million at the end of fiscal year 2013. The budget approved by lawmakers and Brewer in June estimated a surplus of about $694 million.
