If you look real close at the latest AZ Central article about missing the budget deadline you'd find that they haven't really missed the July 31, or August 1, well actually it could be August 7, no wait-- August 10, er. 11th, 2009 deadline.
That's because the dateline on the article is DECEMBER 31, 1969 (!)
So maybe the legislature invented a time machine and went back forty years so they could work all the problems out.
Although looking at how well this group works with each other, I'm not sure that even working on the budget for forty years would be good enough.
