The Arizona Senate stayed up past bedtime last night to knock out a budget in time for Sen. John Huppenthal to go to San Diego today. It had the bare minimum 16 votes, all Republican. Howie Fischer has the details here.
The House is expected to pass it today.
Gov. Jan Brewer isn't saying what she'll do, although it's far from what she wants. Will she veto it or will she blink?
