PHOENIX - Gov. Janet Napolitano said Friday she might veto the state's entire $8.2 billion budget over a dispute with the Republican-controlled Legislature on funding to teach English.
A veto would force the Legislature, which adjourned about 1:15 Friday morning after 123 days, to return in a special session.
Napolitano said the budget deal negotiated with the GOP leadership a week earlier included an "understanding" that Republicans "would sit down and negotiate a Flores resolution with the Democrats."
That refers to a 14-year-old lawsuit in which a federal judge ruled Arizona was not meeting its legal obligation to provide adequate funding to teach English to students who come to school speaking other languages.
"They did not do that," the Democratic governor said.

we're talking about illegal aliens here.
When government becomes destructive of these ends....
Napolitano is only doing this because the only way she can win is with the illegals voting illegally.
This has never been as clear in my mind as it is now.
Everything she does from now on will be for the illegals.
Screw the rest of us as we watch our taxes rise and there isn't a darned thing we can do about it.
I hope the Republicans slam the heck out of her with commercials, the internet and whichever way they can with her nonsense.
I agree she is trying to Kaliforni-ize AZ.
