Concerns voiced for state?s proposed no-growth budget

Dennis Welch, managing editor of The Arizona Guardian, talks about the most recent budget plan presented by Republicans and why Governor Jan Brewer is concerned. At the state capitol, Republican lawmakers have presented a no-growth budget plan, which proposes no new spending above the current level. Welch says Brewer is concerned that the budget will wreck the state. According to Welch, lawmakers know the budget proposal won’t pass, but want to start conversations about what needs to be done with the budget to prepare for the future.
