PHOENIX (AP) - A routine final vote on an Arizona Senate bill granting anonymity to lottery winners is being delayed by a developing clash between Gov. Jan Brewer and legislative leaders.
The bill was set for a final vote Tuesday after being approved last month by the House. That would have sent it to Brewer for her signature.
But Senate President Andy Biggs says he pulled it from consideration because Brewer asked leaders to slow down on sending her bills and work instead on her priorities.
Brewer spokesman Matthew Benson confirms the governor told Biggs and House Speaker Andy Tobin last week she wanted them to focus on her proposals for Medicaid expansion, sales tax collection overhaul and education reform. But he said she didn't tell them not to send her additional bills.
