PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Legislature missed its target of adjourning after 100 days by just five hours last year.
By the time they reached that mark, lawmakers had already passed a state budget that included painful cuts to state services.
The current session has no chance of making that 100 day goal, which hits on Tuesday. That's because leaders of the Republican-led Legislature haven yet to close a budget deal with Republican Gov. Jan Brewer.
And until that happens, other priorities for both Brewer and GOP lawmakers are on hold.
Those include business tax cuts and Brewer's proposal to partially dismantle the civil service system for state employees.
