Details are sketchy, but it appears that Gov. Jan Brewer and GOP lawmakers have a budget deal:

Brewer and lawmakers are working to close a projected $1.1 billion budget shortfall. They've been trying to bridge differences between Brewer's proposal and an $8.1 billion budget plan approved by the Senate earlier this month.

Adams says some implementation provisions to include in the budget bills still are being drafted. About half of the overall savings would come from scaling back the state's Medicaid program.
