Arizona lawmakers started work on a new state budget Tuesday morning, but that work was short-circuited by the afternoon, as the chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee accused the House of going back on a deal.

There had also been talk of this potentially being a bipartisan budget, but at least so far, that does not appear to be the case. 

To discuss what’s going on at the state Capitol, The Show spoke with Senate Minority Leader Rebecca Rios.
