Arizona's governor Janet Napolitano plans to reject a 6.2 billion dollar budget which had emphasized on deduction in educational finance. Continued bargaining over the budget could delay two key bond-related measures, one that would authorize future appropriations to endorse 300 million dollars in debt to be issued for the Phoenix convention center expansion and another for 400 million dollars in revenue bonds for construction of university research centers at four campuses. Programs that the governor want restored include 19.5 million dollars in block grants for childhood education, 42 million dollars for public school programs, and 40 million dollars for universities.
