One-day special session on tap for Thursday

Gov. Jan Brewer and legislative leaders have reached an agreement to push ahead with a special session on Dec. 17, said Senate Majority Leader Steve Pierce.

The plan is to hold a one-day special session.

The scope will include the sales tax referral, additional cuts and potentially easing restrictions under Proposition 105, the initiative that limits the ability of lawmakers to amend voter-approved spending.

Paul Senseman, spokesman for Gov. Jan Brewer, said the governor believes the Legislature should act swiftly. She has yet to call for a special session.

“She believes that Legislators need to act, and they need to act promptly, to further reduce the state budget deficit,” he said.
