Arizona lawmakers want more stimulus info from governor

PHOENIX – A top aide to Gov. Jan Brewer testified before a legislative committee and shared thoughts on the state’s budget crisis on Wednesday, a development that some lawmakers called overdue.

Budget Director Eileen Klein told the House Appropriations Committee that the governor supported legislation to close a shortfall in the current state budget.

Several lawmakers’ comments and questions to Klein focused on their perceptions that Brewer hasn’t given the Legislature a detailed read on how and when she plans to spend federal stimulus money.

Klein said Brewer intends to spread the money over several years and hasn’t made that a secret.

Lawmakers responded by saying they want specifics, and the more the better.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
