Fasten Your Seatbelts, The Ride Is About To Get Bumpy – AZ Budget Time Is Nigh

Traditionally, a session of the Arizona legislature is suppose to be 100 days long.

It’s not a requirement, in terms of the law or legislative rules, but it’s definitely seen as something to strive for. During most years, the 100th day of a session falls in mid- to late- April.

This year, the 100th day falls on April 18th.

The one specific duty that the lege has is to formulate a budget for the state.

Of course, being the lege, their focus is on doing many things *to* the state before doing anything *for* the state…and they use that budget that is supposed to be for the state as a vehicle for doing things to the state, but I digress…

So naturally, they wait until they are well more than halfway to the hundred day goal before even considering a budget.

  1. They should just do a budget in January and adjourn. Just about everything else the one party dictatorship does is destructive to the State or a special interest payback.
