Gov. Jan Brewer abruptly ended budget negotiations Wednesday saying talks won’t start again until Republican lawmakers fix the problems she has with their proposed $8.6 billion spending plan.
Matthew Benson, a spokesman for the governor, says it’s pointless to talk about a budget as long as the two sides are so far apart on how the state should spend its money.
Brewer, according to Benson, ordered her staff to cease talks with legislative aides over the budget until Republicans address her concerns.
