PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has vetoed a bill that would have allowed charter schools to enroll some disabled pre-school students because the Legislature didn't include funding for the students.
The letter accompanying Brewer's Thursday evening veto of HB2054 says she can't sign bills impacting spending while budget negotiations are ongoing. That's a sign she may veto other bills that either trim taxes or add spending until a budget deal is reached.
The vetoed bill would have allowed charters to accept disabled students between 3 years and kindergarten age into special programs and required the state Board of Education to give them some special federal funding.
However, Brewer noted the Legislature failed to include language providing full funding for the students. Her letter said she's willing to consider the issue later.
