The article reports that two U.S. Republican senators from Arizona who defied their leaders by refusing to vote on 6.2 billion dollar state spending bill for fiscal year 2004 are also championing two major bond issues sidetracked by the budget battle. Senators Slade Mead and Linda Binder left the capitol with Binder threatening to take a three-week vacation to Australia. Their votes are needed to win passage of a budget that Democratic Governor Janet Napolitano has threatened to veto. Both senators returned to the floor on May 20, 2003, but aides in the office of floor leader Senator Ken Bennett, said it was not certain that a roll-call vote on the budget bill would be attempted. Binder and Mead also demanded a vote on two bond-issue proposals and a third that could lead to the issuance of bonds.
