Two Arizona Republicans who defied their leaders in the state Senate and stalled a budget by a single vote have forced the party to negotiate with Democrats to try and win passage of the 6.2 billion dollar spending plan. A week after Senators Linda Binder of Lake Havasu City and Slade Mead of Phoenix, went temporarily missing, that compelled the Legislature to take a five-day recess as Senate Republicans try to work out a deal with the Democrats. Binder and Mead had also demanded a vote on two major bond programs, an allocation of future state revenues to back half of a 600 million dollar bond issue for expansion of the Phoenix Civic Plaza convention center and 400 million dollar of bonding authority for research facilities at state universities.
