The article reports that Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano and Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius have opened their states' legislative sessions by stressing the need for additional money for education while promising to resist increasing state taxes. Unlike recent years, in which both states had to deal with revenue shortfalls, the governors promised that their soon-to-be-released budgets would be in balance with no cuts in services.
