Skip to comments.Time for Napolitano to accept compromise school-funding bill
Posted on 05/04/2005 5:49:01 PM PDT by HungarianGypsy
The Legislature has listened to Gov. Napolitano's request for expanded full-day kindergarten, and responded by including funding for it in an education bill. Now if the governor would only listen to the Legislature's request for expanded school choice and approve that provision of the same bill.
Yet she was still insisting on Monday, after the House approved House Bill 2782 to fund full-day kindergarten as well as a small voucher program for students from low-income families, that the measure was unacceptable.
Amazingly, she is still claiming that it's legislative leaders who refuse to compromise on the budget impasse.
The governor was clearly frustrated, because it appears to her that the Legislature isn't ready to really negotiate, said Napolitano's press secretary, Jeanine L'Ecuyer.
That's odd. We thought constructive negotiations involved each side giving something in order to get something in return. As Rep. Chuck Gray, R-Mesa, told the Tribune's Le Templar, If the governor vetoes this bill, none of us gets what we want. But if the governor signs this bill, we get something we want, and we all get something we don't want as well.

I think she'll veto this.
I really, really pray that someone decent runs against her. Do you think she will sail to re-election?
